2007 Dollywood Grist Mill, Pigeon Forge, TN

Built in 1982, the Grist MIll was the first fully operating mill built in in Tennessee in more than 100 years. Corn and wheat are ground for purchase by park guests. It took 6 months to build and all work was done by Silver Dollar City (what Dollywood was named then), the park's glassblowers made all the window panes, the window frames where made on site using steam power, and the parks blacksmiths made all the hardware on the mill's doors.
