A piece of Ringgold, Ga., history is now for sale. Originally built in 1849, the Old Graysville Grist Mill was burned down during the Civil War and then rebuilt in 1869. It continued to operate as a grist mill until the 1950s, and was later renovated and served as a residence.

Located on 24.8 acres, the historic property is accessible via a private suspension bridge with a half-mile of scenic frontage along Chickamauga Creek. An eight-foot waterfall located on the property is visible from the house.

The home includes six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, and has the potential for five more bedrooms and five additional bathrooms. The bedrooms on the second and third stories have deck access for views of the river. The 652 square foot master suite features a garden tub, en suite bathroom, dressing area, and large walk-in closet.

The basement features a water raceway going to the water turbine, which was part of the 1869 rebuild. At one time, catfish and rainbow trout were raised there. The turbine has the potential to generate electricity valued at $30,000 a year.

Mary Beth Torgerson of The Torgerson Team at Keller Williams Realty says the property could serve as a residence, a restaurant, a retail space, or a bed and breakfast complete with rooftop dining, canoeing, fishing, paddle boarding, and more.

The Old Graysville Grist Mill is located just over the Georgia line, with easy access to I-75.
