Looking for a fun place to explore? Family-friendly…check! Easy hiking…check! Fun and relaxing events…check! Then Hagood Mill Historic Site is the place for you.

Hagood Mill is a water-powered gristmill from 1845 built by James Hagood. The mill is still functioning to this day! Just simply watching the beautiful waterwheel rotating gently can be calming, washing the stress away.

At Hagood Mill there are adorable chickens and roosters that walk around freely greeting everyone.

On Saturday once a month grits, corn meal, and flour products are made. I purchased the grits and have to admit that it’s extremely delicious. So be sure to purchase a bag of corn grits at the Hagood Mill Mercantile when you stop on by. 😀👍

Last month, I was at the ECSIT first Pow Wow event. It is a lovely celebration of American Indian culture in which people from diverse indigenous nations gather for the purpose of dancing, singing, and honoring their ancestors.

And last but not least refrigerator man. Yes, you read that right…refrigerator man.
He is one of the many petroglyph images discovered in 2003 at the Hagood Creek by Michael Bramlett. He was named refrigerator man because of his large blocky body. There is a museum within the area where you can enjoy a narrated light show and see the actual large boulder. The museum also has a section of Native American artifacts as well. A must visit!
