The mill would later serve as a home to local architect William B. O’Neal for over fifty years. After O’Neal had lived there for half a century, the mill was sold to the Henderson’s who helped repair some of the flood damage to make it livable for their son. Mrs. Henderson had been infatuated with the mill since she was a young girl. The mill wheel still turns to this day when the creek is high enough. The stone --now paved-- bridge out front connects it to present day Mountain Brook Parkway, a busy road most residents drive on to access Highway 280. The mill holds so much history in its walls and is cherished by the residents of Mountain Brook to this day. It is certain the mill will continue to hold special meaning in the hearts of Mountain Brook citizens for many years to come and hopefully continue to be celebrated and taken good care of.
