Dad Visiting Chappell Grist Mill Dublin Georgia

On Sunday, November 26 of 1990, we did visit with Dad the old grist mill; Chappell's Mill which is rather close to our home.

Yes, this screenshot from above short video shows that the Grist Mill got built in early 1800!

How much Dad always loved the SPANISH MOSS trailing from the trees here in the South.
This was in November!
More Spanish Moss and Dad...

Hope that you, like my Dad, did enjoy this little bit of History here in Dublin, Georgia!

Thank you for your visit and comment.

  1. Hello Mariette, I love those historic old mills, which once were prominent on every river, and at the heart of most early communities. Some of them are still standing in various degrees of dilapidation, but most of them are gone, marked only by partial foundations or remnants of millraces. (You may recall old photo I once posed of the Painesville mill, together with its present few vestiges.) These mills kept the commerce and people of America (and other places) going for centuries, but now are largely forgotten.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Yes, they are indeed sporadic left over buildings from how life once was over a century ago. As a child I remember seeing the one we had in our downtown area. All gone, buildings torn down, the big mill stones removed... Sad in fact as we only have the memory and maybe some photos.
      For our area this is such a beautiful place, however dilapidated too.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  3. I Mulini, opere che i nostri anziani hanno costruito con tanto amore. Un bellissimo posto, regna il silenzio, posto che amo.
    Buona domenica.

    1. Caro Giancarlo,
      Infatti un luogo che è rimasto per mostrarci come i nostri antenati hanno vissuto la vita, nel corso dei secoli. Lo stesso nella mia cita, è ormai lontano, ma abbiamo ancora il vecchio mulino a vento lì e lo gestiscono ancora, il che è buono!
      Buona domenica sera e abbracci,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Thank you dear friend! Yes, it is some history and in general the USA has very few old, old buildings... Not like in Asia or in Europe!
      The Spanish moss is very special for our region.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  8. Chappell Grist Mill Dublin, Georgia looks like a charming place to visit. I'd enjoy spending outdoor time there. Most likely could find a delicious Southern breakfast nearby too.

    You look quite a bit like your father, Mariette. I'm sure he enjoyed seeing you and Pieter and traveling about.

    1. Dearest Debbie,
      Well, there are no breakfast places nearby, this is quite a distance from town.
      But it sure is charming.
      Dad did enjoy this trip very much and so did we, taking him places.

  9. Ooh wat leuk...er groeien daar Tillantsia's in de bomen, ik wist eerst niet wat je bedoelde met Spaans mos, maar toen zag ik de slierten zo mooi uit de boom hangen op de foto er onder..
    Wist echt niet dat die daar bij jullie zo groeien, had meer verwacht dat ze uit Azie kwamen ofzo.
    Maar mezelf er eigenlijk nooit zo in verdiept.
    Mooi stukje Amerikaanse geschiedenis, die "molen"....Al vind ik de Europese wel veel mooier :)

    1. Beste Marian,
      Ja, het is de Tillandsia usneoides die hier zo vrij voorkomt. Ze worden ook gebleekt en voor bloemschikken gebruikt door bloemisten. Het ziet erg tropisch uit en het is verschillend per regio. Caribisch gebied en Zuid Amerika komen ze dus ook voor, net als in Mexico.
      Die molen is al heel oud voor Amerikaanse begrippen. Ze hebben zo weinig aan geschiedenis... Europese zijn vaker uit steen gebouwd en dat oogt al beter en zeker na zo'n 200 jaar.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  10. I like that Spanish dripping from the trees. Such good memories made with your Dad. A fine piece of Americana those old gristmills. There are about 13 in Va. I have only visited one in Raphine Virginia.

    1. Dearest Betsy,
      Yes, the Spanish moss trailing down from the trees is very special.
      Good memories forever indeed!
      You don't beat me on having visited grist mills in Virginia; you sure have plenty of them.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
