A half-mile north of the Oconaluftee Visitor Center is Mingus Mill. Built in 1886, this historic grist mill uses a water-powered turbine instead of a water wheel to power all of the machinery in the building. Located at its original site, Mingus Mill stands as a tribute to the test of time. Hours: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM daily mid-March through mid-November. READ MORE

Joe Todd says, “I enjoyed my visit to Mingus Mill and give this “stop” four stars out of five.” (If you are a history buff)
Thanks for stopping by Great Smoky Mountains Virtual Tour of Mingus Mill. Built in 1886
We likedthis place when we toured it in 2010... I always enjoy your remarks -- and beautiful picures -- on places we've been.
Seems like a lot of trouble when you can pop down the supermarket for a loaf of bread :)
Beautiful mountain and sky shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Such a beautiful area of our country. I was lucky enough to live in the Appalachians for 15 years.
This sounds so fascinating, the kind of place I would love to visit.
Been there too, Joe.... We enjoyed seeing it --and learning the history... Great little mill.
Thanks for your comments on my blog today.
