Historic Hand Operated Sluice Gates Historic Bush Mill Sluice Gate - Scott County, Virginia - USA.

in Historic Hand Operated Sluice Gates

James Culbertson built a grist mill in 1831 on Amos Branch outside Nickelsville. The land and mill later passed into the hands of Valentine Bush and his wife, Nancy Gose Bush, who moved to the area from Russell County. The Bush family added a water-powered sawmill upstream and a water-powered wool carding machine downstream. They also continued to operate the grist mill until April 1, 1895, when a fire broke out in the structure.
