Broad Mills Pond


This pond was constructed in the 19th century to feed the waterwheel that drove the cotton mills at Broadbottom.

Within the Broad Mills Heritage Site, today it is a pleasant respite for ducks.

Looks like a peaceful place to relax and ponder. I wonder are there benches close by.

a beautiful spot...those look to be cattails at the back of the pond...at least that's what we call them here in TN. Our cattails grow in marshy, wetlands and are a rare sighting nowaways.
