From the Zillow listing:


Located on historic Shoulderbone Creek at Georgia Highway 77, this landmark grist mill has had several names, including Harris’s Mill, Baxter’s Mill, Sparta Mill, and Millmore Mill. A mill at this location has served the community for over 200 years, though its early history is a bit unclear. The area was the site of the Shoulder-Bone Creek treaty in 1786 between pioneer settlers and Creek Indians and an early village of Hancock County. It’s truly one of the most beautiful places in Georgia. The mill has ground corn and wheat since the late eighteenth century and has been retrofitted to produce hydroelectricity. This property is adjacent to a finely designed 1930’s bridge. The views from every angle are breathtaking. The history is so rich with one of the buildings serving as a house to hundreds of ancient Indian artifacts. The possibilities are endless for this property.
