Olympia Candy Kitchen Goshen, IN

Established in 1912, San Husaus started his business in Goshen, Indiana at the corner of Main and Clinton. After eight year, the business was sold to Nicholas Paflas and his wife Leona.  4 generations later Kare Anderson, the great-grandson of the Paflas still operates the business, but has since expanded the menu from the original candy store and ice cream parlor, now with serving breakfast and a full lunch menu. If you want to experience some nostalgia, stop in at 136 N. Main Street, Goshen, Indiana for a cherry coke, and ice cream soda, or some chocolate delights.

Established in 1928, Adolf and Mary Fobe, living in the Belgian neighborhood of Mishawaka decided to open a bakery at 414 W. Seventh Street.  Over 90 years later (3 generations later), the family still operated the business and continued to make fresh baked breads, Danish, doughnuts, cakes and of course Belgian buns, selling to the surrounding neighborhood. Greg Fobe retired in 2020. The bakery was sold to David Price, but several of the employees remained. Kathy Davis and her daughter Jennica Kamphus with 13 years of experience is helping to maintain the quality of food and service.

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,
