Norton Grist Mill Big Ridge State Park, TN
We love seeing mills, it was sad that this was not in operation or in it's original locations but fun to see all the same. 
I wish that folks would realize what history these pieces of art have ...covered bridges, mills, parks, whatever ...we need to raise our children and others folks to know that these are precious items. Respect these items, enjoy their beauty & pass them on to the next generation.
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Hey there!! It was a Lincoln kind of day ...the Lincoln tour continues, if you did miss the "1st post from that day" in June 2019, please catch up! I did take several pics of his log cabin, but it was so dark inside the building that those pics didn't turn out well at all, kind of blurry and didn't give the details much respect??! I have always been a fan of log cabins, what about you? They seem so rustic and cool. Very unique! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

Hey there, thank you stopping by today!! I am such a fan of President Abraham Lincoln. He was truly one of my favorite Presidents to learn about in school. I guess partly due to his extreme height and how cool he looked. I just loved studying about him and all his historical moments. Always a fan of hearing and seeing artifacts about him. Who is your favorite President? Or maybe you might wanna say who you loved learning about when you were a child?
There were a few maybe like two paintings, of Lincoln making him look very sad, rough and weak?!! I always imagined Mr. Lincoln to be a man of such strength, courage and honor. He would never show weakness ...I know he went through some rough moments ...but he had such character.
It is just tough to take a picture of a picture ... I went throughout the museum looking of paintings or other keepsakes trying to decide what to share with y…
