The mill was built in 1890 by Andrew Jackson Munday and his youngest son, Erasmus Tomlin Munday. *Update: Also called Mundy's Mill as/sign on the mill. Angie Hill 01/28/2008*

The mill was owned & operated by four generations of Mundays. This mill was a community gathering place where, besides having their grain ground into flour or meal, they could swap stories or catch up on the weekly happenings of family and friends.

Other activities of the era were perhaps just sitting under the shade of the virgin pines and whittling on a stick. All these activities have been reduced to mere memories since the mill burned in 1986.

*Digital photos of earlier photos taken by Hugh Allen, 01/20/2006* *Update: My Grandfather was John Franklin Oakes, who ran the mill for the Munday's all through the depression. Most of their children including my father were born in a shotgun house that was for the mill workers family. I doubt that it is still there. I wonder if anyone would have a picture to post of the shotgun house that was next to the mill. Al Oakes, Jr 01/26/2008*

I had fished Mundy's Mill as a child and later had taken this photo. www.georgiaruralphotography.com
