2013, Day 24 - Grinding

This is the historic Cedar Creek Grist Mill.  It was built in 1876 and managed to change hands a number of times in the first few decades after it was built.  Fortunately the mill provided a much needed service and quickly became the heart of the local community.  Dances and musical performances were frequently held at the mill.  As time passed and needs changes a machine shop was added in the basement and later a smithy on the main level.  The upper level was even converted to an apartment for the owner's bachelor son.  Still, it was the site of many community events until purchased in the 1950s by the Washington State Fisheries Department and would later be added to the National Historic Register.  It is a beautiful site and the fall color only serves to highlight the amazing location.
