Old Grist-Mill and Waterfall at Gid

This old mill site is mentioned as the destination two young men took during a brutal winter in 1886 when the younger of the two, little Johnny Lee, died of exposure on the way back to his home. The story is documented in the folk ballad, "Little Johnny Lee", written by Reverend John Crafton soon after.
