Sweetwater creek Mill

Oil on canvas panel 6 x 8"
$ 150

A clear cold day by the creek. In 1860 this was the tallest building in the Atlanta area, a 5 floor mill harnessing the power of the water. Burnt down at the end of the Civil War.
       Even today these ruins stand majestic and gracefull.

The sweetwater creek is spanned by this wonderful bridge, a quiet and tranquil place with a lot af american history . In 1860 the close by mill (5 floors) was the tallest building in Atlanta.
