Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

The historic Lanterman’s Mill, a still-working grist mill in Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, Ohio (USA), remains a showplace in the park that draws thousands of visitors each year. Originally, the land that included a natural waterfall was the property of John Young, who founded Youngstown, Ohio. In 1797, two of his surveyors were exploring the waterway (now Mill Creek) and when they found the falls, they realized the site would be perfect for a mill. The original mill was built of logs and operated until 1822; a replacement operated until 1843 when it was washed away in a flood, thus making way for the current mill, which opened in 1846, that continues to operate. The mill was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Mill Creek is one of the largest municipally owned parks in the country.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.
