Take This Historical Old Mill Road Trip Through Georgia For A Trip Back In Time
Mills in Georgia have played a huge part in our state’s history. Oftentimes when there was a mill present in a town, it became a huge hub for business and revenue. Mills also brought a ton of jobs to the townspeople. However, as the world evolved, so did technology and our mills quickly became extinct. However, a few of them still remain, and are just as beautiful, if not more, than when they were first built. This road trip takes around 9 hours in total without stoppage, but can make for an incredible weekend road trip, with phenomenal photographs. Find the entire road trip here, or click the photo below.
