Dobrilo Ivković Mill on the Mlava River is located at the very exit from the village on the road to Veliko Laole. It was built at the end of XIX century.

The mill base is shaped as Cyrillic letter “G”, dimensions 12.46x7.70x2.80m. The interior consists of a mill and mill room which was additionally built in 1963. The mill foundations are of stone and mill rooms are made of concrete. The walls are made in half – timbered construction with oak planks composite, while the mill room was bricked but not mortared. The roof is complex and the roof cover is tile.

The mill has four millstones with a necessary mechanism for grinding. The millstones are arrayed one next to the other till the south wall of the mill. About 20m south of the mill a waterwheel barn was built at the same time as the mill itself.

The mill belongs to a rich type of objects of this sort, because initially there were six millstones inside it and as such it used to represent one of the biggest mills in this area.

Today, the mill is covered with modern tiles and is in good condition.
