I searched again and actually found this info about the mill: The Golden Creek Mill is located in the small upstate town of , just east of Easley . Today’s Golden Creek Mill, which is one of the prettiest stops along the South Carolina Heritage Corridor , is actually a replica of the original mill built in the early 1800s. The original mill was built in 1815 by William O’Dell and served as a testament to the ingenuity of that century. The mill produced cornmeal, grits, flour, cotton, and even ice cream – all without the aid of electricity! For over 110 years, the mill was powered solely by the water in Golden Creek. Golden Creek Mill was originally designed as a grist mill, but in 1835 a cotton gin and press were added. Later, in the 1900s, an ice plant was introduced. Several elders in the area still fondly remember the ice cream made with that ice.

It does look like a fun place, themomofmil. Now I'm wondering about the view from up on the little deck... thanks☺

Could be Shirley, but I think it would put the door right between the two levels of windows. But could be....

See I'm not the only one wondering about those stairs. Pretty little mill in a lovely woodland setting.

So pretty. I'd live there!

I picked up on those stairs too, Dave, do you think they could possibly turn to the left?
A lovely puzzle, Thanks, Dave.

I did notice their irregularities and thought they must be river stones but their colour is very distinctive Dave ☺️

It would be fun to see that light from the inside, Jill. The stonework by the waterwheel is interesting, too. Like little stream stones, Thanks

It makes me wonder, too, pattyanne, some small local mills had living quarters at the mill...the porch steps don't go anywhere. It does make me curious. I didn't find any info with the photo except location.

Looks like somebody is actually living here.
