Bean's Mill - Opelika, Alabama

There is an old mill on the way from my Mother-In-Law's house to Auburn, Alabama.  I have driven by it for years and never stopped.  I decided that Taft might enjoy it since he loves to see new things.  We stopped on our way into town and got the phone number of the people that own it.  We called on our way back and they said it was fine for us to do a little exploring with the camera.

Today I am linking up with A Rural Journal for Rural Thursday.



  1. Thanks for linking up with Rural Thursday! I love your old mill pictures - so cool!

  2. Gorgeous place -- love all of the water features!

  3. Isn't it amazing how many times we drive by places and never stop? This is such a neat old mill - great pictures!

    1. It really is amazing how many times we never stop and all the things that we miss. From the road, you can't see that it is a different world down there. The air is different, it's cooler, it's quiter. I think that I will stop a lot more often.

  4. Cool old mill....I thot of getting under the spillover for my heatstroke!

  7. Thanks for the pics. I found my grandparents living at "Bean Mill" in the 1940 census and googled it to see what came up. They must have lived nearby in the community, will be interesting to see what else I can find out.

    1. That is amazing! I wonder if they were there and saw FDR when he stopped there in 1939 on his way to Warm Springs, GA? That would something neat to find out.
      I am pretty familiar with the area since my husband is from there. Let me know if I can help. If they are buried in the area and you know where, I would be happy to stop and take photos for you. Just let me know.

  8. My husband and I would like to see if we could take some pictures at this mill. Do you know how we could get in touch with the owners to make sure it would be okay?


    1. If you stop there on the roadside, you will see signs posted on the trees. It has the number to call. I am sorry that I didn't keep it. I hope that helps.
