Ragsdale Mill

Mt. Olivet Rd.
Homer, GA 30547


The Ragsdale Mill was built during the Civil War and began operation around November 1863. Its millstones were made in France and brought into Savannah by a blockade runner to bypass the U.S. Navy guarding the port, and then transported from the coast during wartime. The Ragsdale Mill is located on Mt. Olivet Road. Mt. Olivet Road is north of Homer along U.S. 441 and off Ga. Hwy. 51 N. Today, the historic mill is in good condition, no operating, and not open to the general public.
