Located at the convergence of Scarham and Whipperwill Creeks, the area has supported at least two stores through the years…one owned by I.E. Powell in the 1940s and the other by previous owner of the property, L.G. Belue, in the 1960s and 1970s. The mill building has not been used for as long as many locals can remember.
