The Waterwheel Finds a Home

On Friday April 11, 2008, the waterwheel made it’s final journey to it’s resting place. A place where over 100 years ago another water wheel stood. We hope this one will be here for many years to come.

My husband and I loaded the waterwheel, and it began the long track from the shop where he built the wheel to the creek.

It is about a 3/4 mile trip.

My brother tried once to help install but he was doing everything wrong and decided to let the specialists do their work. Building such a water wheel and mill pond takes a lot of time and efforts, was there someone that knew how to build it or you did this on your own?
