Prater’s Mill Heritage Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Explore a working 19th-century grist mill, a cotton gin and general store. Built in 1855, the water-powered mill was instrumental in developing the agricultural economy of the region. Open Thursday-Sunday, there is an entrance fee which includes guided tour. The second full weekend in October is host to the lively Prater’s Mill County Fair. Enjoy mountain music, living history exhibits, art and craft demonstrations, and authentic Southern food. The mill was used as a campsite during the Civil War and is located on the Blue and Gray Trail which travels from Chattanooga, Tennessee to Atlanta, Georgia, highlighting Civil War battlefields, monuments, cemeteries, museums and more.
