Mingus Mill Cherokee, NC – 500 Bread Recipes – MRR

Mingus Mill is located in the Smoky Mountain Park, within the Cherokee, NC entrance. This is an old time mill, that still functions and produces mill grains for purchase.

 

This fascinating Mill provides plenty of visual displays and signs depicting how the old-time grain milling was done. The demonstrations are fun to watch and there is a small store where you can buy some grains, like millet, for home use.

I particularly love this setting as it is very photogenic and by visiting this Mill, you often feel as if you were taking a walk in yesteryear’s footpath. See the giant mill stones, see how they directed the water to turn the millstones, cross over a stream and walk the footpath to the mill, and experience the inner workings of an old mill. This mill captures my heart and I love it every time I visit the area.

 

 

This is a particularly great stop for families and tourists, but this is also a favorite spot of mine to catch some terrific photographs of a working mill. Not too many left that function and produce grains for consumption in the country! So, if you get to the Smoky Mountain National Park, Cherokee side, be sure to stop at this destination!!
