The machinery in this towering old mill has been restored and the owner grinds a small amount of corn each year.
Nearby is the millerís house with ornate decorative trim.
The large 12-14 foot diameter metal waterwheel is supplied with water by a 2 foot diameter steel penstock.
A differeent angle of the penstock and distribution box above the overshot wheel. Unique, in that the angle of the penstock would cause one to think the wheel would turn in the opposite direction that it does turn.
The mill is located on Butner Mill Road, which turns off Highway 67, and is open only by appointment.
A better view of the long, over 200 feet, penstock that supplies the water of a tributary of the Yadkin River to the wheel.
A millstone used as a step leading to the mill porch.
To see the mill, contact the owner, John Pruett at (336) 699-2252.GPS: 36D 11.37'N, 80D 27.63'W ele. 810'/247 meters Vienna Quadrangle
