Clark’s Mill, Jefferson County


I haven’t been able to locate any information on Clark’s Mill, but it’s obviously an important landmark in Jefferson County.


Like most old mills today, it’s located on private property and is not accessible to the public. There’s also what appears to have been a modern restaurant located on the property.

  1. I think I can help with you search for info on Clark’s Mill. Well, at least I’ve got a good nugget on the hamlet once-known as Clark’s Mill, Georgia:

    I’ve been doing a deep dive on Otis Redding. I found out that he actually was born on the Laing plantation fields around Clark’s Mill, Georgia. I had to contact the author of “Otis Redding: An Unfinished Life” to confirm it because he didn’t definitively state it. I wrote a post about it to keep for records:

    Your pics were the only other thing I found online – short of having to go to census records – that had anything of use regarding Clark’s Mill, GA.

    Would it be alright if I used one of your Clark’s Mill pics on my article, so long as I give proper attribution and a link back to your site to show original source?

    • Yes, and please keep me informed. Fascinating.

    • I’m thinking this might not be the correct Clark’s Mill, though, as this is in east central Georgia, near Louisville…

      • Oh, that’s a possibility. Weird. I’m not Georgian so I thought Jefferson County was on the county line or something. I took the name of this site “Vanishing South Georgia,” and assumed the rest. Headslap on my part.

        Yeah…Otis Redding’s Clark’s Mill, GA would have been in Terrell County, GA.

        How many Clark’s Mills are there?
