Mingus Mill

TN, TN

Caption: The Mingus Mill we see today is nestled among trees, but, in its heyday, the mill was surrounded by cleared fields and crops. Although the Mingus family, who moved into the Oconaluftee Valley in the 1790s, probably built an earlier mill on this site. The present structure was completed in 1886. Mingus Mill was the largest mill in the Smokies, serving about 200 families. The millrace channels water into the 200 foot long wooden flume that rides high atop a bridge of log cribbing.

Other than the added handrails, this looks like it right out of the 1880's. Super shot of this classic mill.
Update: Looks even better with at blue border. Congrats
