Thanks to the generous residents who picked up 16 bags of trash along Route 634 for our Spring clean-up. Chas and JoAnn, Joyce and Nick Humphrey, members of the McLeod family, Larry McClellan, Pat and Bill Rowe, Alyson and Auchie Swett, all did a great job to improve two miles of the road we pass each day. If you are willing (including students with community service hour needs), call me for the next clean-up in the Fall --- Ann Ferguson, 948-5365.
Madison County History Bits - 1805:
Repton Mill, a massive 40' x 40' square building of five floors was built on Beautiful Run in 1805. It is the only mill still standing on its original site (it is on private property). The mill continued to function into the 1940s. A man who, as a boy, was sent to the mill with bags of grain laying across the neck of the horse he rode, remembered that he taught himself to swim in the millrace. The miller told him to stay out of the way while he ground the corn and wheat. This activity, which he never discussed with his parents, was his way of keeping himself scarce. (Can you imagine the hue and cry if a youngster was left to himself that way in today's world!)
According to a Virginia Survey in 1937, over the years, there were 21 mills in Madison County. These mills played a critical role in the daily life of the people. Grains were converted into flour, tree trunks were transformed into board lumber, and raw wool was processed into yarn and fabric.
