September NA RR - John Primer Cable Gristmill

Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  John Primer Cable helped provide both food and shelter to many Cades Cove families.  His water powered mill served as a gristmill to grind corn into meal and as a sawmill to cut timber into lumber. Cable's son John inherited the mill and operated it well into the 20th century.
