Before

Posted By on December 8, 2009

abc-blog-321This is a photo taken by the Indianapolis News just after we bought the place.  The only time there was water on the south side of the creek was during a flood.  This brought in lots of dirt, mud, sand …etc.  The south side silted in and there was grass, weeds, bushes and trees growing below the mill.  There was no mill pond, it was full of dirt, weeds …etc.  Shortly after this photo was taken part of the foundation collapsed on the mill.  We have come a long way since 1995.  Karen and I would like to thank all the folks that encouraged and help us.  We could not have done this without them.

    You most certainly have done alot to the mill and the mill pond.

    I’m curious to see the millpond and dam now that you are done with them. I didn’t expect you to get it all done already.

    I’ll be in Parke County on 1-21 for PCI’s annual meeting, and most likely come over to one weekend of Maple Syrup Festival

    Take Care & Best Wishes!
