Reagan Tub Mill

The Alfred Reagan Tub Mill, located along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, a one lane narrow road open to cars and smaller vehicles in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Reagan mill is a standard tub mill, with a flume redirecting water from Roaring Fork to power a tub-wheel turbine. The turbine turns a grindstone which breaks down corn and wheat into cornmeal and flour. Reagan’s mill was well-designed and well-positioned. It is said that when other mills lacked sufficient water power due to low water levels, Reagan’s mill would continue to operate.

Thanks for Stopping!
