Stice Grist Mill and Stice Shoals Dam
North Carolina 1778
This was a popular proverb used by our early settlers, making profit from their land when they settled on the best spots of a stream. Grist mills were used to grind up grain into flour. Presently, we use the type of mill, i.e. flour mills, corn mill, etc.
The original Charles Stice mill, later owned by the Duke Power, carries the name Stice Shoals Dam but still exists on the First Broad River, Cleveland County, NC, (county names have changed).
