Additional Details:
Built in 1798 on "Lost Creek" by James Rice and son, this ancient mill was in continuous operation until 1934, when the TWA moved this rare bit of early America to save it from disappearing beneath the waters of Lake Norris. All moving parts, spokes and dowes were fashioned by hand in keeping with details of original construction. Still under supervision by descendent of James Rice, the creaking mill produces it's daily quota of meal which is purchased by thousands of tourists from all over the world.
