Ring Mill Site
|Photo by Ben Prepelka
Stop number 2 on Ohio's Covered Bridge Byway leads sightseers to the site of Ring Mill. Walter and Margaret Ring purchased a parcel of land in Monroe County in 1840. Their stone home quickly followed and still stands today. Soon, their attentions turned to a grist mill on the Little Muskingum River. A sawmill was added by 1850 and continued operation until 1920. Floodwaters destroyed the mill and little evidence remains today.
