I visited this place for the first time when I was just a teenager (many moons ago.) The Old Mill has been functioning since the 1800’s, which provided a grist mill for the townsfolk in Pigeon Forge. It also provided electricity for the town until 1935. The giant-sized water wheel continues to harness the flow of the Little Pigeon River as it did back then.
This is a wonderful place to visit and shop if you’re ever in the area. These photos are from two years ago when I was vacationing back east. I couldn’t resist going back to this beautiful and enduring place!
The Old Mill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If you go to their website at http://www.old-mill.com, you’ll discover a delectable assortment of stone ground grains, baked goods and handmade pottery items for sale online.
