GRISTMILLS OF THE SMOKIES BOOKLET
     During THE 19TH AND EARLY 20TH CENTURIES, rushing waters born high in the Great Smoky Mountains provided all the needed power for grinding corn into cornmeal and wheat into flour.  Gristmills did more than process food, however.  They were integral parts of mountain communities.  Their stories whisk us back to earthier times when obtaining our daily bread tied us both to the land and our neighbors.

     This booklet explores the history of gristmills in the Smokies and takes an in-depth look at the four mills that have been faithfully preserved in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.. It is ublished by the Great Smoky Mountains Association, a nonprofit organization that supports the education, scientific, and historical programs of the park.  All proceeds benefit these efforts.
