Glade Creek Grist Mill by Jack Ryan

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The Glade Creek Grist Mill, which was built in 1976 in Babcock State Park near Charleston, West Virginia, is constructed from parts of three other grist mills, including the Stoney Creek mill which was built in 1890. It serves as a tribute to the more than 500 grist mills which dotted the state in the early 1900s.

I am a retired high school English teacher living in northeast Ohio with a particular interest in photographing lighthouses. As I write this, I have photographed 184 lighthouses…at least one on each of the Great Lakes plus numerous Atlantic Coast lights from Maine to North Carolina. My primary camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi…and I use either a Canon Powershot G12 or a Canon Powershot SX120 as backup.
