This 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.
