Prater’s Mill,

Dalton, Georgia

Located in the north Georgia Mountains, Prater’s Mill has held their “Country Fair” for a number of years. It draws many people, not only from Georgia, but from the Chattanooga, TN area as well.

The Country Fair has much to offer, as they have Southern country cooking, Mountain music, Clogging, and other continuous entertainment throughout the festival.  Praters Mill is located on the Coahulla Creek and is a great setting for their craft demonstrations, living history exhibits, and exhibits from the many artists and artisans.

I couldn’t help, but to paint the old Mill. There we even a few people fishing in the creek, while listening to the country music.

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,
