Road Trip: Mingus Mill

Built in 1886, Mingus Mill was the largest gristmill in the Smokies. It still operates today and we picked up a sack of whole wheat flour and cornmeal as souvenirs.

You can find the Mill about a -half-mile north of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center in Cherokee, North Carolina. There is a short trail walk that leads to the mill. It is definitely worth a stop.
