Falls Mill in Tennessee

Falls Mill is a working mill and museum.  We went here as a short day trip.  It was great!  We took a picnic lunch and ate near the mill.  Hubby got 20 lbs of pancake mix.  Cant wait to go back.  I bet it is really pretty at Christmas.  The above is a bagging machine for the flour.  This is the water wheel.  The water is directed from a stream down to the wheel.  Very interesting.

This is the mill and wheel.  See the excess water coming down on the right.  Later it became a trickle because they started up the mill for demonstrations for a bus load of kids from school. 

This pic is of the falls from where we were picnicing.

This pic is of the upper falls.  There is actually a lot of old buildings around to look at also.  It's only $4 per adult to get in.  Very nice day trip!

This is where the owners live on site.  Gorgeous old log cabin.  They were thinking of making it into a bed and breakfast.  There is also a cabin that you can rent for the night. 
Hope you enjoyed our day trip pics!

Talk to ya later!
