Mingus Mill on a foggy,fall morning.Built in 1886 it is powered by a water turbine inside.It is an operating grain mill,March thru November.You can talk to the millers and buy the grain.It is located on the NC side of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.Our forefaters didn’t go to the store for bread the 1st had to grow the grain,it then must be ground.Only then could they make it.

    Beautiful scene Gary. The perspective along the trough is excellent. Would make a great house too.
