Road Trip to the Mountains

Had the opportunity to visit the Mingus Mill House in Cherokee N. C. this weekend. What a beautiful scene and such great history presented. I purchased the cornmeal and wheat flour during our visit. Tonight our family enjoyed the corn muffins with our meal. It was very good along with our meatloaf, coleslaw, green lima beans, and garlic potatoes.
Very interesting visit and something for the family.

Pictures below are the inside of the old Mingus Mill in the early 1900's and the water chute on the outside. It was still an operating gristmill grinding the corn and wheat for families in the area during that era. The mill continued to run until around 1930 when the land and mill were bought by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
