Sweetums got some amazing photos of what is known as the old Red Mill in Marshall County. It is also known as the mill at Double Bridges because there are two bridges crossing Scarham Creek.
It is located on Martling Road in Albertville. Please note: Road work has begun in the area because it was the site of numerous fatalities. In addition, people have drowned in the water below the mill. If you go, be safe.

Great story and amazing pictures. Sad to see it coming down.
It’s been a landmark all my life. I’ve watched it get it’s sags and wrinkles as I’ve seen my own appear in the mirror. The worst part, for me, of getting old has been seeing the things of my youth disappear and being reminded that someday we will all be forgotten. (Maudlin thoughts for such a beautiful sunny autumn day, but this week marks the one year anniversary of my husband’s death, so I’m a bit more morose than usual) It’s nice to see those memories being physically archived. Great shots. As a photographer, love done scholarships over the years. She’s always been a willing subject. I’ll never forget how loudly that water could road after big rains. (After 57 years on the same Marshall County farm, passing over the Red Mill Bridge many times a week, I live now on the banks of Scarham Creek near where it begins in DeKalb County. Life is a big circle.)
Sigh. I never should write on my tablet without glasses… “As a photographer, I’ve done similar shoots over the years.)
Hahaha! The auto-corrected comment was a little confusing. Glad you cleared that up. It is a beautiful place and a reminder of all the history we’ve lost. Thanks for the comment.
