Breneman Turner Mill





Breneman Turner Mill
5001 Turners Mill Ln
Harrisonburg, VA. 22802

Built about 1800, Federal style brick building.

Funny thing was the hubby didn't realize we had been to this mill ...gosh I don't recall when it was??! We started dating way back in 1998. When I was in community college there in Weyers Cave, VA. So I would guess early on dating stage, I think??! Any who, I know during that visit the carry takers were there so we got to see inside and chat a bit. He doesn't remember any of that??! I rather enjoy this style of "grist mill", very cool! Weird. Any who ...no one around ...but fun to see again. Took time in middle of July 2020, hot and humid but fun day trip. Thanks, for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take Care. Beth ( ;

Hello,

Cute story about your previous visit to the mill. I show photos to my hubby to remind him of places we visited, he forgets. I love the mills, the last shot and angle of the mill and wheel is great. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a great day week ahead!

They've done a lot to fix it up! I intended to see the inside during the summer. I think it was open every third Saturday or something like that. But then they opened late in the season due to the pandemic, and I don't feel comfortable touring anyway. Maybe next summer.

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…

We had dinner at "Pyramid Lake Resort". We were camping at the Wapiti campground within Jasper National Park. We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
