From the Museum

Joe Johnson brought the museum this picture taken in the early 1970s when Mrs. Ida Johnson gave the museum the mill and pan in memory of her husband, Wade. She is demonstrating grinding cane by mule power. The sorghum mill was restored by the late C. L. Birch of Tillar (center) and received for the museum by the late Eric Hardy of Monticello (left).
