It was all owned by the textile mill that closed in the '60s and burned down in the 70's....I think it's been mostly vacant since the 80's

Edit: the http://henryrivermillvillage.org/ site is cool too and show's the old steel bridge.

Spring-like weather all across the South and East today!

You'd think that I could have been a little bit more motivated for a ride but as it was didn't get rolling until about noon.


Kinda got buffaloed into sleeping in.

















The trees think it's winter....but they won't for long if it stays in the 70s!
















No taggin' this week......this might be a good one for another day though.

Stobie had tipped me off to the location of an old mill earlier this fall but I was having trouble remembering where it was so I stopped here for a diet Mtn Dew break to see if it could be figured out by going back to that PM on my phone.




Success! and "The Pig" was running great!













I kinda wished to be on a different bike upon my arrival though.
















Actually could probably have ridden across anyway but....didn't care to risk a flat on that big ol thing.




I'll never understand why people trash a place up like that?!

I'm thinking that this is Dutchman's Creek?
















The old single lane steel structure actually appears to be in very good condition yet.

Love these old bridges!! Thanks Stobie!!
















"The Pig" may have had a little trouble through here too. ..walking wasn't a problem though.
















You'd never even be able to see it from the 'new' bridge in the summertime.

The real treat was on the other side of the bridge though.....can you see anything out there in the woods?
















Alba Mill?



















Yup....a bunch more silly pics of these old bricks coming up.
