Description

This is a historic mill built by Robert Jemison Jr. who was also known as the "Father of Birmingham". The mill is nearly 90 years old and once functioned as a tea room where people came to enjoy tea and soak up the scenery along the banks of Shades Creek. The mill is a picturesque spot, and when the leaves are green and the creek is running high, it makes a great spot for photos.

On the Road: From the Jemison Park Trail, the mill is located across Mountain Brook Parkway. Use caution if crossing the street.
