Rakes Mill Dam
(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)
Betsy and I found this dam at the site of Rakes Mill while driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. The miller, Jarman Rakes, allowed customers, and only customers, fish for brook trout in the mill pond while their grain was being ground.
