Old Photo: Hunt-Copp Mill (Mill Creek)

While investigating the location of another mill-site near Melbourne, the EIC Crew obtained an old photograph of the Hunt-Copp Mill near the mouth of Knob Creek on Mill Creek. The color photos below the black & white one of the mill as it existed were taken this past summer. Awesome, eh?

The mill, originally called "Hunt Mill" served the Jumbo Community and was operated by Alonzo Hunt who also farmed the area around Pilot Knob. The Hunt family lived at the base of Pilot Knob itself.

Thanks to Zena and Larry Sartin for the use of the vintage photo!
