Historic Turner-Brenneman Mill

Abraham Breneman, a Pennsylvania native who moved to North Carolina in 1770, erected this monument on Linville Creek in the late 1700s. During the pioneer era, the water-powered mill functioned as a hub of community life because of its crucial role in grinding grain into flour, hominy, and cow feed. Rockingham County’s lone pre-Civil War grist mill is still in use, and neighbours helped put out fires started by General Sheridan during his 1864 campaign. He envisioned it as a site where future generations may learn about milling and watch it in action from 1933 until 1988 when J. Howard Turner was its most recent owner. Website
