The Rose Hill Mill is a three story frame structure of mortise and tenon construction. Built in 1859 by Dr. J. W. Herring who named the mill. In 1887 the property was purchased by Dr. G.W.W.Hannah, a prominent Thomaston physician, and since that time has been known as Hannah's Mill.

I used to spend my summers in Thomaston in the 1970s and early 80s and remember playing around and inside the mill. My grandparents lived in the mill village and Silvertown. Still have a lot of relatives around there. I still love Thomaston and really miss those pool-room hamburgers and Piggy Park barbecue. Thanks for the picture and best wishes from South Carolina.

Loud and Proud, Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving this interesting bit of history! I love hearing from people who used to live in the area. The old mill is still standing, but looks as though it could crumble any day. Piggy Park is still turning out the best BBQ and brunswick stew ever! I hope you can come and visit again soon ...... Maybe take in a movie at the ole RITZ while you're here. Thank you again for stopping by. All the best from Thomaston to South Carolina. :)
