The connection to the National Parks Service trail system at Roswell’s historic mill will be closed for up to five weeks.
NPS is renovating the steps leading from the end of Old Mill Park’s covered bridge to the trail system, the city says. Construction began in October and should be finished by the week of Nov. 19. In the meantime, the trail system may be accessed by the bridge that runs across Oxbo Trail located on Oxbo Road.
A big extension project to add trail access and connectivity to other trails in the city has been underway since spring. The expansion will connect to the historic mill ruins south of the covered bridge, located at 95 Mill View Ave.
Construction of the original mill dates to 1836. The mills, founded by Roswell King, produced cotton, wool, flour and other goods.
