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.

We made it across the rock bridge.

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?
