HISTORY OF THE SPRING
In 1906 Samuel Lincoln Rose built and ran a grist mill on the property. He kept a portion of what he ground up for the locals as payment. Sam raised 11 children by this spring. He was deeded this property and 500 acres around it, from the railroad because of an accident at work. He leased out part of the land to 4 farmers. He had a moonshine still up in the mountains nearby and the corn meal from the Grist Mill and water from the spring was what produced the shine.
Grist Mill operated around 1906
In the early 1990’s, the water wheel from the Grist Mill was moved to Renfro Valley Entertainment Center, renovated, and put into operation at their mill, located on U.S. Highway 25. The old log corn crib used by the mill still stands on the site today. The crib over 100 years old is 8′ x 16′ and constructed of spruce logs. Mr. Rose’s children were locked in the corn crib as punishment for bad behavior on many occasions as they were growing up. Mr. Rose eventually came back to the area, became a minister at a local church, and is buried nearby at the Johnetta Cemetery.
