Fresh spring water pouring over a waterwheel is such a pretty sight. It brings a feeling of nostalgia for the old days. I always wish I could have seen the old Cohutta Springs mill when water still flowed over the wheel. The historic grist mill at Cohutta Springs is no longer there; but at one time, it brought people for miles around. They came, not just to grind corn or wheat, but to hear good music and dance! The top floor of the mill was a dance hall. Across from it, and connected by a walkway, were the old resort and mineral springs. The site of the old mill was in North Georgia, near a town now called Crandall.
