1. Shoal Creek Mill Stone Marker
Inscription.

This mill stone was discovered in Shoal Creek just below where Crockett Falls is today. This is the “runner” stone from an over runner gristmill, that would have ground corn into meal. Crockett’s mill was located in that general area in 1819 until a flood destroyed it in 1821. This stone possibly could have been used in his mill.
