Gresham’s Mill

Also known as Sixes Road Mill,

Canton, Georgia

Sixes Mill, was one of the earliest settlements in north Georgia.  Located in the Georgia Gold Belt, which runs along the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, prospectors originally built the mill around 1820.  The mill survived the Civil War and was reconstructed between 1878 and 1880. The mill sits along Sixes Road about 3 miles west of Holly Springs, Georgia.

Since I had done several Art Shows and Festivals in the north Georgia area, including Acworth, Cartersville, Cummings, Marietta and surrounding the Atlanta area, I had several requests of prints of the mill.  It became part of my Grist Mill print set, which included Stone Mountain Mill, GA Summer, Stone Mountain Mill, GA   Spring,   Starr’s Mill,  Sixes Mill, from GA and Pigeon Forge Mill in Tennessee.

Grist Mills have always had a special interest to me, they are fascinating, and brilliant planning for the water to do the hard work!  Here are some grist mills around the Country that I have painted,
