watermills Watermill in Lexington, North Carolina, collapses

The watermill at Old Mill Farm, Reedy Creek, Davidson County, on the Yadkin River has partially collapsed into the river.

The mill, historically called Eureka Mills, was in existence in the 1840s, and from the 1880s to the 1930s whilst still being used for grinding, also served as a community center. After a variety of owners, the mill passed to the present owner Bert Clapp, who made some efforts to preserve the mill. In 1984 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
