John Wesley Hall Grist Mill & Cotton Gin


The John Wesley Hall Grist Mill & Cotton Gin operated on this site from 1867 to 1931, was successor to one of Alabama's earliest grist mills located a mile west on Mud Creek.

Burned during the Civil War, Hall's Mill was moved to this location to begin a new life during reconstruction.

Rebuilt in 1976-1977 as part of the Tannerhill Historical State Park development under a grant from the Linn Henley Charitable Trust.

Hall's Mill is an accurate copy of the old structure which did business here for 64 years.

Erected by Alabama Historic Ironworks Commission.
