This is the old store across from Sciples Water Mill. There is a sign on it, which announces a “singing”. I would have giving anything to have been able to attend this old singing….. The singing would have included, country, gospel, and some old fashioned blue grass…..Oh, My…..

Sciple’s Mill was built in 1790 and still runs today. If the owners are not in attendance, simply take your fresh ground cornmeal, and leave your payment in the Honor Box outside.
