 Beck's Mill

George Beck and his sons from Roann North Carolina built a small 15'x15' log mill on this site and started grinding corn in 1808. The third and present structure was built in 1864 and operated until 1950. By 2006 it was in poor shape but fortunately it was restored. This view is looking to the SW.
