Earlier this week, Kathy & I were itching to go somewhere. It was a chilly day and we didn’t want another 3-mile hike so we headed north to Murray’s Mill Historic site.
Murray’s Mill Historic Site is an easy 30-minute drive from our house and is operated by the Historical Society of Catawba County. The website says that the mill is open most days, but it did not appear to be open on the day of our visit. There are a number of interesting outbuildings including a blacksmith shop. A small general store there had a sign that said it was open, but we didn’t go in.
We walked around the grounds, and while it was a chilly day, the fresh air and scenery was nice. There is a “literacy trail” with signboards along a walkway describing a children’s book “Dragons Love Tacos.” In warmer weather they have other activities going on. Something to do on a nice day.
