Yates Mill Gristmill

This gristmill is about 3 miles from my home here in Wake County, North Carolina.

It is the last operable water-powered gristmill in Wake County (more than 70 water mills once existed in the area).  The Mill and the property surrounding it were purchased in 1963 by NC State University.  The Mill was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and was restored to working order through a grassroots community effort by 2005. This photo was taken in January 2008.
