Norton Grist Mill, TN








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 ( ;

I agree with you, we need to preserve more of our historical places/homes/bridges. Lovely pictures.

I guess that while Sen. Warren can raise $25 million, but there isn't money for history or healthcare!

Interesting. Most grist mills I've seen are bulkier with strong walls, but maybe they are the ones that usually last for a century or more.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
