This sign beckoned me to turn in, but besides turning around and snapping a few shots, I was unable to explore this local landmark as it’s private property.

The structure pictured above and the cabin below are all I saw, but there appear to be others on the surrounding property.

The mill pond is a tranquil landscape and a longtime favorite of fishermen.

Scarlet Wild Basil (Clinopodium coccineum) , a species widespread in the nearby Ohoopee Dunes, is present here, as well. I’ve seen more of these interesting native plants in Emanuel County than anywhere else in Georgia.
