Mill Creek Park: Lanterman’s Mill

Bob and I spent this past Saturday (August 9th) at Mill Creek Park, a metropolitan park located in Youngstown, Ohio.  Our first stop was at Fellows Riverside Gardens.  When our visit to Fellows Riverside Gardens ended, we rode around the west side of Lake Glacier to Lily Pond.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs that I took at Lake Newport and of a Suspension Bridge.  After lunch we returned to the park and stopped at Lake Newport and a Suspension Bridge.  Our last stop in Mill Creek Park was at Lanterman’s Mill.

It was restored in 1982-1985.

A covered bridge, which you can see in the distance in the photograph displayed above, crosses Mill Creek.

On my first visit to Lanterman’s Mill in July 2013 with my friend, Marge, we were able to tour only the main and upper floors of the mill, as the water wheel (located on the bottom level) was being worked on during our visit.  The observation deck overlooking Mill Creek was also closed.  Progress has been made since last year’s visit.

During our visit on Saturday, Bob and I were able to tour all  floors of the mill.

The water wheel, however, still requires repairs and was non-operational.

We enjoyed our visit to Mill Creek Park.  I would like to return one day, perhaps in the Autumn.  The colors of Autumn in the park would be beautiful indeed!

    What a neat mill to visit… Looks like they have made progress on the water wheel. You’ll have to go back again once it is operational. We saw a similar mill with waterfall in GA one year –on our way to Texas I think… I can’t even remember where it was but was one of those signs that call our names while on the interstate…. ha

    Great photos, Linda and Bob.
    Hugs,

    Hi, Me Again –just checking on you… I stopped by here to see if I had missed some of the recent posts. I haven’t —so I assume you are just out and about enjoying the end of Summer… Hope your tooth is okay now…

    Hugs,
    Betsy
