Location: The Roaring Fork > Great Smokey Mountains >Tennessee > USA
The tub mill is located in the Roaring Fork Historic District in East Tennessee.
The flume diverted water from Roaring Fork, which splashed over and turned the mill’s tub-wheel turbine (under the mill house).
The mill was well-designed and well-positioned. When other mills lacked sufficient water power due to low water levels, Reagan’s mill would continue to operate.
The turbine turned a grindstone in the mill house which broke down corn and wheat into corn meal and flour. The mill, constructed around 1900, is still operational.
