Expected to see the big paddle wheel driven by the momentum of downstream water flow, however, it was a gear driven system underneath the mill that was driven by the current. Nice area to take a walk and hike around.

Just checking out some of the historic sites around Dalton. Lovely place, just wish it had not been cold & windy the day we went. Would have enjoyed staying longer.

If you're wanting a local place to practice photography, Prater's Mill in autumn is nice for the way the colors reflect off of the water.

This is a great historical location to visit. You can get up close and personal with the history of grain milling and cotton processing. And if you come during the mill on the 2nd weekend in October. You can enjoy great food, arts and crafts,...More
