Museum of Appalachia, Clinton, Tennessee
This image provides a close-up of the structures shown in last week’s featured photo: an old mill and cantilever barn. These two buildings must be viewed from a distance because they are not accessible to museum visitors.
The cantilever barn was originally located near Seymour in Sevier County, Tennessee. This type of barn is primarily found in two east Tennessee counties, Sevier and Blount. You can read more about the unique barn design HERE.
The Hacker Martin Gristmill used waterpower to grind corn and wheat. It was originally located in the community of Boone’s Creek, a few miles from Johnson City in northeast Tennessee.
