Yates Mill Pond
Many of our North Carolina State Parks were affected by gristmills and the millponds that were created in and around our North Carolina communities. We do not have any working gristmills in NC State Parks so we traveled to a Raleigh county park, Yates Mill Pond, to talk all things millpond and gristmill. From how a gristmill works, the community aspects of a gristmill and millpond, to the nature that is in and around a millpond, our guest Ranger Rebeccah Cope educates us on it all!
