Norris Dam State Park, Anderson County, Tennessee
We visited this picturesque grist mill in early October. It is located about 35 miles north from our home, near the towns of Norris and Rocky Top. The mill was originally constructed in 1798 in Union County. It was dismantled and rebuilt on Clear Creek, southeast of Norris Dam. The charming old building serves as a landmark in the Norris Dam State Park.
Mr. Jim reports that he used to visit this mill with his parents when he was a little redheaded lad. He thoroughly enjoyed wading in Clear Creek, right next to the mill, searching and catching crawdads that lurked under the stones. Ah, sweet memories!
