Old mill at Berry College in Rome, GA.
Constructed in 1930, the Old Mill boasts an iron hub which had initially been of service at Hermitage, an early manufacturing community near the Shannon village among Rome and Calhoun, Georgia, and was a gift to Berry from The Republic Mining (bauxite) and Manufacturing Company.
The wooden overshot waterwheel, regarded as one of the largest in the world at 42 feet in diameter, was constructed by student workers. For numerous years, the mill was operated by Mr. Green Berry Goodson, a white-bearded miller who ground Berry-grown corn into meal and grits. Water is piped directly from Berry’s reservoir lake to the wheel. As soon as primed, the force of gravity is sturdy enough to push the water up the stone column, and over the wheel, causing it to turn.

Mingus Mill, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina
This 1886 turbine mill ground corn into meal and wheat into flour for more than fifty years for the mountain community close to Mingus Creek. In location of a wooden water wheel, a little steel turbine supplied energy to turn the mill’s stones and machinery. The National Park Service rehabilitated the mill in 1968, and Mingus Mill operates in the course of the summer season as an historical exhibit.
