Under the Alfred Reagan Tub Mill - Smoky Mountains

This is the turbine or tub under Alfred Reagan’s Tub Mill. After the water is channeled down the long water flume, the flume tapers down sharply, and the water strikes this turbine wheel under the mill forcing it to turn. It is the turning of this wheel that powers the millstone.
Alfred Reagan’s Tub Mill can be found along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is the smallest Grist Mill I have ever seen.
