This beauty has been here since 1864.

This is a fun and scenic stop near Eau Claire, WI.  It is beautiful all year round, but especially in the fall.  The mill was initially used to ground wheat, which was a very important part of Wisconsin's economy during the Civil War era.  It has been used for many different things since then.  Currently it is owned by Amish folks.  They have a store you can walk through and there is a museum.  

Areas around the mill are private property I believe, so the best place to photograph it is from the County V bridge.  Be careful as this can be a busy road. 

I would make this a stop while doing a 2-4 day trip to Eau Claire, which has a lot of fun activities to offer.
