Gwinnett County's newest park features a very old facility....this old mill. It is located in Lawrenceville on Alcovy Road. Whereas McDaniel Farm makes you feel like you are in the country but you really aren't, this one IS in the country!
The wheel is one of the largest I have seen. I like to photograph informative signs so I have the information when I return home.
Above is the front of the mill, with the river behind it. The road is on the left in the photo. I like to place flowers in my foreground when possible. They add so much color!
The information sign has a photo of the dam before it was partially destroyed by a flood. This area was also flooded back in September when Atlanta had several areas flooded. I believe I read in the paper that if the county had not been in the process of restoring the mill, it probably would have been destroyed last September. There are many trees that were uprooted in that flood lying along the edges of the stream.
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
