The Glade Creek Grist Mill stands as a relic of the past in the mountains of West Virginia. Though it was not constructed until 1976, it was built from the remnants of other, original mills dating back to the 19th century. Powered by the waters of the small creek, a water wheel turns a millstone that grinds grain into flour against a second fixed stone. Although grist mills no longer have the local importance of our pre-industrialized times, their history and beauty are still remarkable, especially when that beauty is set among autumn in the Appalachian Mountains.
