When we first arrived at the Clifton Mill I thought that I would have a clear shot of the whole mill and the water running down the cliffs. However, what I didn’t know what that most of the area around the mill is blocked off by fences. To get this picture I had to climb under the covered bridge (which is right above me in this picture) and shoot the mill while crouching down next to a ledge which looked over a 15-20 ft drop to the river below. Next time I go back I plan on getting a different angle, but overall the mill is very pretty. Could be a little better kept up though in my humble opinion.
(Information taken from their website) The historic Clifton Mill is one of the largest water powered grist mills still in existence. The first mill at this site was built in 1802 by Owen Davis, a Revolutionary War soldier and frontiersman miller. The mill was built in this location to take advantage of the natural power of the concentrated water funneled into the gorge. Owen Davis and his son-in-law, General Benjamin Whiteman also built a saw mill and a distillery. Soon a village known as Davis Mills sprang up around the mills. The Little Miami River powered five other mills that were built within a mile of Clifton Mill; a woolen mill, saw mill, paper mill, barrel mill and another grist mill. Clifton Mill is the only one still standing.
