The waterfall of Glade Creek Grist Mill puts on a breathtaking show following a night filled with heavy rain, beautifully synchronized with the brilliant autumn colors of the surrounding leaves.
The Glade Creek Grist Mill, located along the picturesque Glade Creek at Babcock State Park, is a functional tribute to the over 500 mills once operational in West Virginia. Constructed in 1976, the new mill was assembled using components from various deteriorated mills across the state. It replicates a mill that previously existed nearby, known as Cooper's Mill. The structure incorporates elements from the Stoney Creek Grist Mill in Pocahontas County, which dates back to 1890. After succumbing to fire, the overshot water wheel was rescued from the Spring Run Grist Mill in Grant County. Additional parts were sourced from Roaring Creek Grist Mill near Seneca Rocks.
