Markle Mill - Old Mill Dam

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Markle Mill - Old Mill Dam

Markle Mill was the longest operating gristmill east of the Mississippi, and is rumored to have been part of the Underground Railroad, but all that remains of the original 1816 structure are the dam and parts of the foundation. The ghost girl who has been seen here is believed to have been someone who passed away while using the now-closed underground tunnels.

    1. I have been here several times. It’s pretty cool, but also kind of sketchy and I don’t mean in a paranormal way. I have yet to see anything paranormal.

    2. The Markel Mill homestead is still there today. Just sold to new owners. It’s an amazing well kept home for it’s age. Rather beautiful!!
