Mill Closing Temporarily At Levi Jackson State Park
LONDON, Ky. – The mill at Levi Jackson State Park will be temporarily closed for three months while work is carried out to improve water flow to the mill.
McHargue’s Mill is a working reproduction along the Little Laurel River that has authentic interior works and millstones. It will close this week to allow for the dredging of a pond that is used to provide water for the mill.
The mill normally closes on Labor Day weekend so it will not re-open until next Memorial Day. However, cornmeal from the mill will still be sold at the park museum and campground.
The rest of the park – the museum, campground, pool, and mini-golf will remain open.
