McHargue's Mill at Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park

On our way home from our holiday road-trip, we took a brief break to stretch our legs in Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park. We happened to stop at McHargue's Mill, where the path is lined with historic millstones. According to the park's Web site:
"McHargue’s Mill was built on the banks of the Little Laurel River where it intersects Boone’s Trace. This working reproduction mill dates to the same era as the original McHargue family mills and has authentic interior works, including millstones. It is surrounded by the largest display of millstones in the country."
It's a fascinating little piece of history, and the large collection of millstones is very interesting. I wish I could see them at work!
