Black Rock Mill

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 27 April 2016 in Architecture.

Black Rock Mill, located on Seneca Creek, was built in 1815. It was a substantial three-story stone building with the millstones on the second floor, the flour hoppers to catch the ground grain for bagging on the floor below. The bags of raw grain or corn were hoisted by pulley to the upper floor where the grain was poured down funnels, chutes and gates to guide the grain gradually between the two grinding millstones.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."

Une très jolie histoire pour ce beau moulin dans cet endroit si paisible. Et quel plaisir pour ces enfants de pouvoir barboter dans cette petite rivière.

Excellent composition with added foreground interest. I like how the foliage screens our view of the mill.
