The Old Mill in The Fall - Berry College Greeting Card
This original Berry College greeting card features the old mill in the fall on the campus at Mount Berry near Rome, Georgia. This wooded view of the 1930 mill features an array of warm fall foliage colors that simply brings a smile to my face. How about you?
The Old Mill at Berry College was built in 1930 - the year is featured in the round stone on the gable end of the building seen in this print. The water wheel is actually older. It was a gift to the college that had previously been used at the Hermitage, a manufacturing community located between Rome and Calhoun. The original metal structure of the wheel still remains but my understanding is that the wooden parts of the wheel have been replaced during multiple restorations of the wheel.
The waterwheel at the old mill is powered by water from the Berry Reservoir. It's piped to the location but once the pump is primed the water flows under its own pressure. The old mill is still functional and periodically grinds cornmeal which is sold in the campus gift shop.
Isn't this a beautiful setting especially with the vibrant colors of the fall foliage? What attracts you to the artwork on this Berry College greeting card?
