Mabry Mill, Blue Ridge Parkway

Mabry Mill, on the Blue Ridge Parkway, is a grist mill, saw mill and woodworking shop that was all run off of the water wheel. The park service has restored the mill; the wheel turns, but none of the belts are installed.

Mabry Mill is so picturesque that other states have stolen it's image for their postcards (including, ironically enough, Iowa).

This is also where I curbed the wheel.
