Inscription. 1/2 Mi. south on Fall Creek stood a watermill built in 1837 by Daniel Smith, an early Tennessee pioneer. The original mill was destroyed by flood in 1905, and a new one 1000 ft. distant was built by J.E. Evins near Carmack Falls, where the river drops more than 1300 ft. The mill ceased operations during World War II, but its site has remained a scenic recreation area.
