Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.
Today Bobby Arnold and I set out on another photo shoot to capture a grist mill or two. As we rolled on down the road the list grew to add depots, then a bridge was added toward the end of our journey. With each stop our list grew to include more stops until new trips were given birth to cover the locations we wanted to visit.

We started with Sixes Mill, after we left there the sun came out, so on our way back through for Tate Depot, we stopped again to shoot with a sunny sky.

Berrie Smith called to ask our progress and discovered he was not too far away so we stopped to grab a bite to eat in his old stomping grounds near Marietta.

Look for more locations coming soon.
Woodstock's former Louisville & Nashville Railroad depot was built in 1912. It was acquired by the city in 1968 and used as city hall until 1982. After a time serving as a community center, it was rehabilitated with federal Transportation Enhancement funds and now houses a restaurant.

Sixes Mill, locally known as Gresham's Mill, is located on private property. Easily seen from Sixes Road, a pull-off just after the top of the rise from Exit 11 affords a safe parking area. The mill survived the Civil War period, and was extensively refurbished around the same time as the arrival of the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad. Since its last renovation in the 1880s, the mill building and over-shot iron wheel survive in remarkable condition. The vintage pickup truck adds plenty of nostalgia to this historic landmark.

Poole's Mill Bridge is a historic wooden covered bridge crossing over Settendown Creek in Forsyth County, Georgia, United States, built in 1901. It is 96 feet long. Circa 1820 Cherokee Chief George Welch constructed a grist mill, saw mill, and a simple open bridge at the site on this tributary of the Etowah River.

Tate Depot was constructed in 1916, the depot served L&N's Old Line, also known as the Hook & Eye Line, for decades. It is similar in design to the depots at Blue Ridge, Chatsworth, Holly Springs, Jasper, Ellijay, and Woodstock.

In April 2015, Tate's historic L&N depot was moved across Highway 53 to a new site that places it a bit farther away from the tracks and the road. The measure improves safety at the busy intersection while preserving the building for future use.

Concord Bridge is 131.7 feet long and 16 feet wide. It was built in 1872. This bridge is open to traffic. It is over Nickajack Creek. There is a historical marker at this bridge.

Lefler Mill was purchased from J. T.. Lefler, owner of the Pine Run Mill in Hinesville, Virginia and the Pine Run Mill was moved to the campus of Life University.

Life University should hold its head down with shame when you see the condition of such a treasure. Especially when you see the monolithic entrance just a couple hundred yards away. Just a small portion of that grandiose entrance would repair and restore this asset. What a shame.
