My mom and a friend of hers came to Kansas for fall break. Sue (my mom’s pal) wanted to take pictures. I did the greatest I could. This was the second stop of the morning. Up early to get this light from the east for the mill. It was worth the 1.5 hour drive early in the AM.

I was just right here a week before taking this and the trees have been just starting to turn. A week later and I was rewarded with this!

This old corn gristmill was constructed in the mid-1800’s in what had been Cherokee country (I reside in Cherokee County). The Cherokees have been rounded up in 1838 and forced to go (walk) to Oklahoma – in the winter from what I’ve study. It’s a horrible chapter in our history. There was also a federal fort and gold mine close to this site. The California gold rush is a lot more well-known but we had a gold rush of our personal back then. The wheel is nonetheless turning but I don’t know if the loved ones nonetheless mills anything. Privately owned and just a couple of miles from my property.
