looks a bit like the Mabry Mill down the Blue Ridge Mtn. High Way :)

Brian Humphreys on March 22, 2012

I see the resemblance. However, the Mabry Mill remains whole where it was built. This mill, at Babcock State Park, WV, was assembled in the 1970's from parts of three mills that were being dismantled across the state. The state government, not wanting to completely lose the historically significant mills, and hoping to create a tourist attraction, took the pieces and contrived this mill in the heart of our mountainous region.

This is one of my favorite places for hundreds of miles around my hometown of Charleston, WV!

Thank you, Milla! It is one of the most scenic spots within an hour of my home. I visit every chance I get, because I feel much the same as looks like it's from a story book page.

I enjoy looking at all your photos as you upload them, and treasure the comments of all my talented Panoramio friends. Thanks for the kind words.
