Spring Mill, Mitchell Indiana - Dam & Mill Pond

Spring Mill, Spring Mill State Park, Lawrence County - dam and mill pond

The dam creates the mill pond from Mill Creek. The water source is from Hammer Cave Springs. The water flows into the sluice gates at the mill pond. Once the sluice gates are open the water flows through the wooden sluice down to the mill and hits the water wheel. The excess water flows over the dam.
