The Old Mill, North Little Rock, Arkansas

On my way to the Austin Psych Fest I stopped in North Little Rock for a couple days to visit Daniel who recommended we see The Old Mill, a reproduction of a 19th century water-powered grist mill that was designed by sculptor Dionico Rodriguez in 1933. The grist mill itself is original, dating to 1828, but the rest of the mill and the grounds have been recreated. Nonetheless the mill has become a historical marker and is now on the National Register of Historic Places, largely for its appearance in the opening credits of Gone With The Wind.
