Historic structures include those known as Riddles Grist Mill and the Waldo Covered Bridge!

Just a few years back the old grist mill building was an operation restaurant (the Old Mill Restaurant - in which I had many dinners) with lots of large windows overlooking Talladega Creek. I own land a few miles from here and had many dinners there.

Google Waldo Covered Bridge for additional information.

Riddles Mill Mine located just upstream from the Mill located on this property.

Gold History. I am a Gold History buff and own a Geological Survey of Alabama, published in 1896. The Riddle Mill and nearby properties are discussed. The Riddle Mine is just upstream from this property, the Story Mine is just downstream. Out of my 1896 book: "During the summer of 1894, Mr. Walter Riddle, one of the owners, milled the ore mined by lessees, in a small mill with light stamps, with some degree of success." :Assays by Dr. J. H. Pratt show the following results: Riddle's near Waldo, #35.97 a ton gold; 83 cts silver."

I also have the Alabama Gold Map by Big Ten showing gold mines and prospects at this location.

This property has a direct border to the southeast with the Talladega National Forest - so when business is over you can hunt, fish, and hike the beautiful bordering National Forest lands.
