Howser Mill, Dawson County, GA

Howser Mill is located on Howser Mill Road in Dawson County, GA, on the eastern bank of Shoal Creek. Some research is in order as a google search covering 15 pages revealed very little.

In the City of Dawsonville Comprehensive Plan 2008-2030, even though the mill is outside of the city limits, it is mentioned as the first producer of electricity to the city through the use of a turbine water wheel.

Winter is the best time to see the mill, as the foliage that is creeping up virtually covers the SW wall in the Summer.
