previous owner was in the process building a grist mill before passing.
This rock bottom creek gets super full after any rain.  Easily a 50ft drop in 200yards before you get to the wheel.

Excited and bragging a bit ;).

This’ll be a project to complete at a later date.
For sure.

Brag away!  That's great to have that much going on the project already.  Good luck with the future manifestation of it into full function.

Hey Jay;  What a great project to have !  Looks to me like "Dad" could be a willing volunteer to putter away at it.

Are the metal box supports concrete filled ?

How long does that stream flow before going back underground ?

And I second Roberto,  BRAG AWAY !  Cool find !!
 
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
