Woodsons Mill

Back in October, we took advantage of a beautiful sunny day to ride up to Woodson’s Mill in VA, a historic, working grist mill with two waterwheels.

We talked to the owners about various technical approaches for converting this micro hydro site to produce electricity. Hydropower at this small scale is very hard to pay for, but depending on their interconnection requirements with the utility, they may be able to justify some expense to produce a little power. Mostly, both of us think old grist mills that are still working with shaft powered equipment are neat, and I wanted to share a few photos.
