Original mills along the Soque River were built as early as the 1820’s. In 1928 Robert Watts and his father Allen “Grandpa” Watts purchased the Hill’s Mill property. Grandpa Watt’s knowledge of building and milling proved to be invaluable in the construction of the Watts’ Mill on our current location. This was all during the Depression when times were very lean for everyone. About the only businesses around, so they say, were moonshining and a little saw milling. Although wood sold slowly, the grists mills seemed to grind on steadily.
For nearly 50 years now our potters have been creating one of kind, unique, and functional pottery pieces. Each handmade piece carrying the individual signature, “mark,” of the potter that creates it.
