Grist Mill Power Source

This water is not actively powering the grist mill in the distance, but back in the 1870s, this flowing water helped the people of Cades Cove in Tennessee  make a life for themselves.  This Smoky Mountain water allowed farmers to turn grain into flour and ground meal, and while today it serves more as a repository of pennies thrown by visitors, it is still a great reminder of farm life in the late 19th century.
