Anderson Mill

A storm was brewing over Lake Travis when we visited Anderson Mill on Sunday. This is a replica of the original mill built in the 1860s by Thomas Anderson on Cypress Creek. Until the recent rains, you could actually see the original mill site in the dry lake bed a short way from the site of this mill, but once again it is submerged beneath the waters of Lake Travis. This grist mill is fully functioning, although they were not grinding any corn whne we were there. The Anderson Mill Garden Club opens the grist mill to the public once a month from March through October. You can find their website and schedule at http://www.volente.org/amgc/.
