Levitstown Mill was built in the early 19th century and was once home to a thriving industry. This famous landmark is clearly visible on the Athy to Carlow road and it has well over 100 windows.

Its working life came to an abrupt end in 1942 when it was destroyed by fire. Almost 200 years after it was built the four walls and some of the internal walls remain in great condition, which shows the skill of the stonemasons who built them all those years ago. Its said that the fire which gutted the mill was a spectacular sight visible from miles around. The current owner has considered restoring it but the cost of returning this massive building to a working life would run into millions.
