Nora Mill is a fully operational grist mill (one of the few that still grind corn) located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River outside of Helen, Georgia.
Built in 1876, the mill is four stories tall, has 1,500 pound French Burr Mill Stones, a 100-foot wooden raceway and a wter turbine rather than a water wheel.
John martin, a goldminer built the mill in 1876 and made Sautee-Nacoochee Valley his home. Dr. Lamartine Martin., who became the Governor of Georgia from 1927 - 1931, bought the mill in 1901 and named it after his sister "Nora".
Today the mill is run by the Fain family and they now have the fourth generation of Fain's coming up in the milling business. The Nora Mill Granary is a well-known destination for visitors to the mountains.
A variety of milled products are sold in the mill and in the mill store adjacent to the mill. Make sure to sample some Pioneer Porridge on your visit.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the mill is open year round - except Christmas Day.
