Elim; The old Watermill and more

(See also previous posting)

It took Emile Richter the past years a lot of work and passion to restore the old watermill and he is clearly proud of it. His wish is it to use the mill again for milling wheat grains into flour as it was originally designated for.

Roofs in the main road are re-tatched, there is a very affordable B&B, roads to, from and in Elim are upgraded, a restaurant opened and there is even a kind of internet cafe plus a wine cellar. But the watermill, the original heart of this small town, is the attraction for the history minded visitor.

    1. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to share this special place. In the eighthies and ninethies I’ve been all over the States (except Alaska, Oregon, Montana and Washington) and Chicago is one of my favourite cities. Was there when they started the restoration of the Pier and also went all the way up Sear tower….. 😉
