The land here is full of beauty. Rocks, Trees, and crystal clear streams

Observing these water power mills of about 100 years ago, I'm starting to understand how different builders found a variety of ways to harness this area's springs and rivers to power their machinery.

Dillard Mill is the most operational mill I've seen. There are shakers, sifters, cutters, augers, conveyers, and blowers, all run by large leather belts powered from a water wheel or turbine.
