Hannahs Mill

Still on the road with company portrait work. I took some time after finishing up for the day to visit a local landmark of sorts. Built in 1858 and has been owned by the same family since 1931. It was operational up until 1978 and is listed in the historical places of Georgia. It is the last surviving grist mill out of 11 mills that once thrived in the area. It operated with a water turbine and not a water wheel like most mills did. All the original milling equipment is still inside the building. It stands on private property and many many thanks to the McDonald family for allowing me to venture onto their property and take the pictures and also passing on the history of this mill. Not many people are allowed to visit it anymore so I am very honored to have done so..
