Millwood Mill, Cismont, Virginia


Millwood Mill, Cismont, Virginia

We took a day drive through the country and got to see this beauty. Early July 2020. My hubby can go "mill crazy" ...thankfully around Virginia are these amazing architectural treasures. so amazing. The hubby saw a vulture while visiting this one ...he was so shocked that he (she) didn't move??! I figured the bird was waiting on the hubby to move or die?? That is what vultures do, right? They are always looking for a snack. It was a pretty day. Not cool, the humidity was nuts ...Virginia summer usually stay in the temperature range of 70 degrees or above, rarely any wind (unless u have the fan moving said air) and usually an afternoon thunderstorm. It was a fun getaway for the day. More pictures from that day I will share next week. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;

I too love old mills. Not many in this neck of the woods though. I used to find some when we lived in Illinois, but haven’t seen any in Oklahoma yet. Looking forward to more pics from your adventure.

it's a beautiful mill beth, and a great picture of it!! i really like day trips, a fun ride in the car, something cool to see, and you get to sleep in your own bed at night!!

i think vultures are usually looking for road kill, or small animals. i've not heard of them attacking people!!

our weather has been super hot and very humid. our pool water is 92 degrees, barely refreshing!!!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

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. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
