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

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 :)

Such a beautiful area of our country. I was lucky enough to live in the Appalachians for 15 years.
