Sluice Gate Ruins

This is part of a grist mill that stood between the Chase Mill and the river, until it got swept away in the great flood of 1927. I do not believe it was still active by then. At least no one seemed to miss it once it was gone as no effort was made to rebuild. By then one could buy grist from the Midwest. All that is now left is the stone foundation, part of the flume and some mechanism that once controlled the flow of water through the flume and to an undershot waterwheel.

I am fascinated. And the photo makes me want to be there. I know. It's cold. It looks cold.
