Water Mill at Berry College

Located on the Berry College campus in Floyd County stands this massive water powered mill. Said to be one of the largest in the world at 42ft in diameter this mill was used by the school to grind corn for various uses. In 1977 it was rebuilt in memory of Mr. Gordon Keown. Mr. Keown was an alumnus of Berry, a long-time staff member and a director at the Berry Schools from 1942-1944.

Old General Store

This is what appears to be an old general store in Glascock County. I'll post a closeup of the front doors so you can see an old, rusty Nehi sign.

Near Union Point

Sadly this house in Greene County east of Union Point has needed a roof for years. The interior is rotten all the way to the ground.

Dutchy

" Dutchy" was the first monument made in Elberton in 1898 as the town's Confederate Memorial. The town's people were not happy. They thought he looked too squat and said he looked like a Yankee, "a cross between a Pennsylvania Dutchman and a hippopotamus," thus the name. In 1900 a group of young men, tired of others making fun, pulled him down and buried him in a deep grave. He was exhumed in 1982 and is on display at the Granite Museum in Elberton.

There are different versions of this story. I like this one.
