After my visit to the Lindale textile mill with the Roswell Photographic Society, I was introduced to another mill nearby. A few of the group were going over to Barnsley Gardens after seeing the abandoned mill. Gittel Price, who had been out to this site previously, said – why don’t we go over to the “Old” mill? So we set off and went all the way across the main road and stopped again.
The Old Lindale Mill is an antebellum, brick grist mill. The structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 and is remarkable for being one of only a few surviving mills of this era. The mill originally built in the 1830’s, was destroyed during the Civil War and then re-built by it’s owner Captain Jacob H. Hoss. It has been known by several names: Hoss’s Mill, Jones Mill, Silver Creek Mill, and Folly Mill and is now known as the Old Brick Mill.
The place is very peaceful and a great site to visit. If you should happen to stop here, be careful of the white goose who seems to be the ruler of the mill pond. You may get chased off if the goose does not think you are showing enough respect!
