I've been there a few times, and I recommend it as a place to see, but in the daylight.

Here's some more history from another site.

It's not hard to find, but it is a little difficult.
If you have at least half a day to visit there, then go.
It could take a full day, and I think they do have camping on the weekends, but I'm not sure.

Go to www.mapquest.com and paste in "525 Sciples Mill RD, De Kalb, MS 39328". Then click on "Get Directions".
Off H-495 turn North-Northeast on "Smith-Galloway Rd" and from South to North on "Smith-Galloway Rd", you'll turn left on "Curtis Fulton Rd", a dirt road.
As you go down the hill, you'll see this. You can't miss it, because it dead ends at the mill.
Edward D. Sciple is at the house on the left.
Look for this man. Have fun.

This is just one reason I love my home state. “Old times there are not forgotten.”

Wherever I go, no matter how far I roam in this world, I know that Mississippi is where I belong and, someday, where I will return.

Thanks for the interesting link and story.

I had never heard of it.

My family has owned/operated farms in this county since 1889, so I have respect for things like this.

We have no water power, this part of Texas is normally pretty dry. Of late very dry.

A side note: my great great grandfather had a mill for livestock feed. It was wind powered and place on the 2nd floor of his barn. When the wind got high enough he would call the family out of the field to grind feed in the mill. I never saw that mill, but my father talks about it occassionally.

We are in the planting seed business. Primarily wheat. We have a seed cleaning and processing plant that my father built. It is not simple, not new, but works very well.

In the beginning we put the seed up in bags. For the past few years we only sold seed in bulk, typically in grain cart size loads.

Again, thank for the article and pic.

Thanks for the info. will look them up, I sure would like some stone ground grits. Country ham, red eye gravy, eggs, buttermilk biscuits and grits. A nice alternative to bacon, eggs, buttermilk biscuits and buttered grits.

What’s the most important meal of the day?

Wow! What memories!

My parents used to go to DeKalb to get fresh meal.

My daddy was good friends with Sen. Stennis.

In the late 60s, a band from DeKalb played at a club in Meridian. I wondered why the lead singer was looking at me with daggers in his eyes. It turned out that I looked just like his girlfriend, who happened to be in the brother of my best friends wedding. When I saw the wedding pics, it was apparent.

Small world.

Thank you so much for this post.

BTW, my family got their land from the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Missippy. ;o)

We’ve built a lake house outside of Meridian, and are in the process of going home....again.

One more thing.....there is no cornbread better than Martha White unless you have fresh meal.
