Newsom's Mill

Newsom's Mill - Nashville, TN

This is the remains of a grist mill located along the Harpeth River along the western edge of Davidson County. Built in 1862, the area is now under the oversight of the TN State Park system, as this is one of several locations of the Harpeth River State Park, (such as the Montgomery Bell Tunnel or Hidden Lake). This is located just off U.S. 70, and has a small parking lot on the other side. Visitors can walk up to and, to a lesser extent, through the mill where you can read signs explaining the remnant machinery on the inside. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places.


  1. Ah, we just went here in November to take photos. And it never dawned on me to get a photo from across the river! I tried to get as much of it in from the end of the dam, but with the morning sun behind the mill, my photos didn't come out too good. Great shot!

  2. I crawled all over the place when I was there. I guess I was lucky to think about it as I was driving off and crossed the river on the bridge. :)
