Hall County awarded grant to help restore Healan’s-Head’s Mill

Hall County Government has received a $7,000 grant to help restore the water wheel at Healan’s-Head’s mill as well as the mill’s interior.

The grant, which was awarded by the Watson-Brown Foundation’s Junior Board, was presented to Hall County at its Board of Commissioners meeting on June 14. 

“This grant will help Hall County and The Friends of Healan’s Head’s Mill further its mission to restore the mill and make it operational again,” said Assistant Hall County Administrator Marty Nix.

The Watson-Brown Foundation, Inc. supports historic preservation in part through its Junior Board, a group of local high school students whose exclusive mission is historic preservation. The Junior Board awards $30,000 in grants annually to historic preservation projects in select areas of Georgia and South Carolina.

Hall County purchased the Healan’s-Head’s Mill property and four acres of surrounding land using grant funding in 2003.  After several years, the County, along with a group of interested citizens, known as The Friends of Healan’s-Head’s Mill, began the process of restoring and reopening the pre-Civil War structure. 

Since that time, stabilization of the mill (or Phase 1) was completed in 2017 and additional property was acquired in 2018 to complete the County’s long-term vision for the facility (Phase 2).  The $7,000 grant from the Watson-Brown Foundation will go toward funding Phase 3 of the project, which includes renovating the interior of the mill and making the water wheel functional again.  Future plans for the mill include opening a Visitor’s and Heritage Center near the mill along Georgia 365.
