Millstones
Managed By: Icon Here MillersUnited
Description:
Locate any displayed or abandoned millstones. Mill stones are stones used for grinding raw products such as wheat in to food products like flour.
Expanded Description:
Millstones are round stones used for grinding raw agricultural products (grains, nuts, maize) into food products such as flour. Their effect on history is much bigger than that simple definition though. Powered by either horse, water or wind, mills gathered farmers to grind their wheat. Soon enough these mills created towns and villages around them.

Although many mills have been destroyed over time, the mill stones, due to their tough nature, survive. Communities often put them on display to commemorate their founding or agricultural past.
Instructions for Posting a Millstones Waymark:
The millstone must be accessible to the public. A tour of an active mill where a millstone is on display is also permissible. Coordinates must be taken by a GPS on site or by the entrance of building if neccessary.

Picture:
You must include one picture of the mill stone in its entirety. Additional photos such as of the environment and/or close ups of plaques or text are highly recommended.

Name:
The name should be unique and formatted with the location ex. "STONE NAME - New York"

Description:
Summarize any plaques or information with the stone. Describe the location of the stone and if necessary theorize how the stone got to that spot. Mention any rivers or streams the millstone could have been used on. Also note whether or not the stone has furrows and land patterns on it.

Please fill out as many variables as possible.
