Making Corn Mill (100th Post)

ground corn


Today we look inside the grist mill that I introduced last week. I’d also like to welcome you to my 100th all time post! Thank you for your visits, support, and encouraging comments.



Tannehill’s grist mill was rebuilt by John Wesley Hall in 1867 after being burned during the war. It was involved in milling both corn and wheat grains. Today corn meal is still made periodically and sold to the public.

    A big CONGRATS on that milestone, Phillip. Keep rockin, my friend.

    These grist mill images are fantastic. They are all very nice but I’ll take the first and last as my favs. The B&W is a classic.

    Well done, man.

      Thank Jimi! I’m glad that you like them. That means a lot to me, because your the man when it comes to B/W!

    A great mini series. I like the warm colour tone that holds the pictures graphically together (of course with the exception of the B&W). I also like the different take on the story you show. My favourite is the colour version of the wheels spinning.

    Congratulations with you 100th post.

      Otto I always enjoy reading your insightful comments. They make me stop and think. It amazes me sometimes how the same picture can be printed in color and b/w, and how each will speak differently to people. Some see the story better through color while other see it through black and white. There are still others that see two different stories and enjoy them both. Not that one is right or wrong, just different. Thank you, I really appreciate it.
