The Kenan's Mill Cornmeal Sack


Kenan's Mill cornmeal used to come in a sack like this, and it held 25 pounds
 of water-ground cornmeal. The gristmill on Valley Creek dates from the 1860s 
and operated commercially until the 1970s. That is quite a legacy! 
This sack is on display in the mill house.

I just made a batch of polenta for dinner last night. It's amazing all the things that can be done with corn!

I love cornmeal, but a sack that size would last me a lifetime!

There's a mill here that makes flour, and sells it in sacks similar to this, though I think smaller sizes!

This is cool! All kinds of mills fascinate me. I love it when people remember the once-upon-a-time amazing mills that gave so many different products.
