Just outside of Lancaster,Ohio in Fairfield County one can find ROCK MILL.
The RESTORATION of the mill is well underway and when operational will be driven by a 26-foot diameter wooden water wheel.
The mill was originally built in 1787 by Joseph Loveland and Hezekiah Smith. If one wants to help with the restoration contact:

Just down the road you have Rock Mill Lake which is impounded by Hunters Run Structure No. 9 Dam on the Hocking River in Fairfield County, Ohio and is used for flood control and recreation ( FISHING ) etc.
In closing I would like to mention a couple blogs I follow. First, JOYFUL REFLECTIONS visit Betsy from Tennessee. She really likes waterfalls and has some great photos on her blog. She is also an expert on the “church calendar” as one can tell by a couple of her recent posts. Second, ED KITCHEN PAINTINGS. you might even be able to find a painting of ROCK MILL.
