This afternoon was a beautiful one to be outside. So I headed north of Battle Creek to sketch the old Bedford mill which is located in Bedford, Mi. The mill dates back to 1855. Grain hasn't been milled here for years. The mill's water wheel is gone but the stream that turned it still runs nearby. Most recently the building housed a small print shop operation but that closed a number of years ago. Sadly this is another historical building that now stands long abandoned.
