Where in Carolina Country is This?
The April magazine scene, taken by Doug Isley, proved to be a favorite with readers. The Old Mill of Guilford, located off Highway 68 in Oak Ridge, is a working grist mill and country store listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of you visit the mill and its gift shop to purchase stone-ground meals, grits, flour, mixes, pottery and crafts. One reader remembers fishing in the pond behind the mill as a boy. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Carole Atkins Smith of Bear Creek, a member of Central EMC. Smith commented that the old mill served as the subject for the first watercolor painting she sold.
