This photo was most likely taken in the 1950s while the mill was still in operation.

The race, or flume, before it fell into disrepair. It will have to be replaced.

****SEPTEMBER 22, 2007...THE WHEEL IS TURNING!!!****

This is an historic event for Francis Mill. For the first time since 1976, the wheel is turning. It coincided with our Second Annual Music At The Mill, so many people got to enjoy the day listening to music while the wheel turned in the background.
Here are some pictures of that event:

The first photo was taken the moment water began turning the wheel.
