Madison Mill, Locust Dale, VA




Madison Mill, Locust Dale, Virginia

Down a little in disrepair kind of a road (on a day trip in July 2020) ...where probably a lot of folks run off to go fishing, to hide out in the shade, when July humidity shows it not so nice face, the shade is the place to be ...we found this two beauties ...the first picture is the remains of "Madison Mill", just a wee bit of the foundation is left, so sad. 2nd picture is a store ...we did imagine a general store. Funny how sometimes we you are doing a bit of research it is so tough to find any information out??! We sure wish there was an "old timer" around to pick his or her mind for some good ole tails about this place. I bet it was one of the best places to get some news of the area, great a pop and play catch up with all the locals. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take Care, Beth ( ;

That reminds me of an old country store that used to be not too far from where i live. My mom had lots of stories from that store, as she grew up right next to it.

"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 wi
