Located in Fayette County, just a few miles from Ms. Wendy's, Starr's Mill is well known and has been captured by many artists in their paintings throughout the years. At one time all of these mills were important community centers. Farmers traveled for miles to the nearest mill to grind grain, saw timber, hull rice, or gin cotton. They fished the pond, swapped news and stories, or picked up some supplies as they waited their turn to grind their corn. Many times a town grew up around the mill itself.

Ms. Wendy's offers original paintings by one such artist. These paintings are nicely framed in a great rustic frame. See how beautifully this artist has captured the realistic appeal of Starr's Mill.
