Rock Mill Covered Bridge

This is an amazing place! I guess it is the infant headwaters of the Hocking River. I'm glad to see the mill is almost finished. this place should be made a state historic site.

The old Rock Mill is being restored. Built 1824. 5/17/09

Drop is huge. Local teens jump into this pool when there is enough water. The blue tarp on the left is the North side of the mill, which is not fully restored. The white in the upper left, is the bottom of Rock Mill covered bridge.
