Watkins Mill, Matthews

I believe this historic mill structure was relocated here; the only Watkins Mill I can find in Georgia historical records was located in Butts County. I’m unsure if this is that mill or another, more local operation.

    According to Google Maps, Matthews is located in Jefferson County at the intersection of SR 88 and CR 329, between Wrens and Keysville. It’s about 30 miles SE of Augusta

    This is the only post that references where “Matthews” is. Most folks won’t even know where Butts County is; I don’t! Tell us the nearest bigger city, so we’ll have some kind of idea where in the world this is: e.g. Macon, Valdosta, Gainesville, etc. A larger reference point is always helpful.

    Thanks.

      This Watkins Mill is in Matthews, Ga., Jefferson county. It is about 25 miles south of Augusta, Ga. I’m 49 years old and this building was in Matthews when I was a small child and it was there and looked old then.
