*Update: "I owe this picture to a good friend, Dave Ramsey, who took me to this little mill after he saw the type of work I did in pen and ink. The water trace was rotted and gone at the time of the drawing, but Dave and I kept looking for someone with an old picture of this mill which would help me be historically correct. About a year later we did find a black and white picture that provided the water trace as recorded in this drawing. Oddly the photograph found and the drawing I did were taken from the same perspective." Nancy Bedell 05/10/2007*
