Clifton Mill, Clifton Ohio

Clifton Mill 2


The oldest operating grist mill in Ohio, Clifton Mill features one of the largest Christmas displays anywhere.

Located just off Interstate 70 between Columbus and Dayton, the mill features a fine restaurant and an old-time country store.

But it’s also fun in the summer with the millrace and water driving the large millstone.

It was a hot August day when we visited, and that water cascading down from the waterwheel to Clifton Gorge below certainly looked inviting.

Although this started as a digital photograph it required painstaking editing to transform it into the artistic version here. Because the gorge is so narrow, keeping contrast and lightness in the gorge while also keeping color in the sky and the mill itself required reworking.

This is a limited edition print.
