Hyde County, Lake Mattamuskeet, Windmill

Here’s an image copied from a print in the North Carolina Collection to prove that it isn’t necessarily a recent idea. The image (P1-48-L19-M44, 84-57) is inscribed “Early and late method of grinding corn in Hyde Co. N.C. Mill on edge of Lake Mattamuskeet.”
