The small board building containing a grist mill was donated by Robert M. (Bud) Watson.

It came from a family farm at a crossroads two miles east of Days Crossroads about 6-7 miles north of Fort Gaines.

The meal ground by a motor driven mill was not considered equal to that ground by water-powered means.

The motor caused more heat to be generated from the the higher rpms involved.

Directions: Located in Fort Gaines in a city park off Bluff Street. From Sh 37/Hartford westbound, turn right on Jackson Street before crossing the bridge over the Chattahoochee River into Alabama, then turn left on Bluff Street and go to the park, on the left, where Bluff Street makes a right turn.
