The Old Mill

The Old Mill was never a real working mill, but instead the creation of Senor Dionicio Rodriguez who sculpted the entire project from cement.  The project was built as part of the development of the Lakewood residential community in North Little Rock and was completed in 1933.  The Old Mill was placed on the National Record of Historic Places in 1986.  The Old Mill is well known from the opening scenes of the 1939 film Gone With the Wind.

 

What to Photograph:

The entire park is very photographic and draws many photographers from around the world.  The main attraction of course of the mill itself, but the surrounding gardens are also great photo subjects themselves.  There are many intricate details in the paths and bridges as well that make interesting photos.
