Southport and Pine Creek Millstones


(click on image to enlarge)
This millstone is built into the patio of "Set-a-Spell" on 935 Harbor Road in Southport. It could be possible that it once was used at the Tide Mill, or somewhere nearby.

This is a very rare photo taken from Pine Creek Avenue in the 1920's, across a meadow-sized waterfront yard looking across the inlet of Pine Creek and towards the windmill. Taken from Pine Creek Avenue looking towards the very end of Fairfield Beach Road, almost 20 years before the Hurricane of 1938.
