Jacksons Mill - Stonewall Jackson's Boyhood Home

This is the pond that feeds Blaker's Mill located at Jacksons Mill, the boyhood home of Stonwall Jackson.

The origonal Jackson Mill run by three generations of Jacksons.

Blaker's mill was originally located in another location about 150 miles south and was moved to the Jackson Mill site piece by piece. The Jackson Mill was determined that it was impossible to make it into an operating mill. Therefore it was decided to move another mill to the site so that visitors could see an old water mill in operation. The source of power is the water in the mill pond.
