MARCH 06, 2010 – OLD MILL, LITTLE ROCK
When I read that there was a structure famous for its part in the opening scenes of Gone With The Wind, I knew we had to visit! The Old Mill in Little Rock, Arkansas was a great little free stop for us to visit while we were traveling in Arkansas. We arrived shortly after sunrise and had the place to ourselves on a lovely spring day. We stayed for about half an hour and photographed the area from all angles. My favorite part of the area was actually this adorable duck crossing sign that we found! So quirky and I would love to find one.
“In the dull twilight of the winter afternoon she came to the end of a long road which had begun the night Atlanta fell. She had set her feet upon that road a spoiled, selfish and untried girl, full of youth, warm of emotion, easily bewildered by life. Now, at the end of the road, there was nothing left of that girl. Hunger and hard labor, fear and constant strain, the terrors of war and the terrors of Reconstruction had taken away all warmth and youth and softness. About the core of her being, a shell of hardness had formed and, little by little, layer by layer, the shell had thickened during the endless months.” – from Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
