The Old Mill

places

Scheduled post:  In North Little Rock there is a really pretty Old Mill that is surrounded by a park.  We visited our daughter on Thursday and before we headed home we stopped at the park to take a walk and I wanted to take some photos to share.

In the opening scene of the movie “Gone with the Wind”featuring Scarlett O’Hara back in the civil war days – the opening scene is the Old Mill.  This is the center piece of the park.

You can imagine in another month or so when all the leaves on the trees start and the flowering trees and bushes come in how pretty it is.
