back in the day...

...water from the rivers powered mills to grind corn and wheat. People came long distances to grind a week supply of flour to make their bread.

Tommy Martin, the miller

And so history repeats itself. But this time we drove our car, paid with a credit card and bought 15kg of corn flour to make corn bread and grits in our electric stove! 

This is Nora Mills, probably the only functioning water mill in all of Georgia, powered by the Chattahoochee river. What a great discovery!
