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.
