The John Wesley Hall Grist Mill and Cotton Gin operated at this site from 1867 to 1931. It was the successor to one of Alabama’s earliest grist mills located a mile west on Mill Creek. The original mill was torched by Union Troops during the Civil War. Hall’s Mill was rebuilt in 1976 and today grinds out corn meal sold in the Country Store. It is located on the grounds of the Tannehill State Park.
