Wiki Wednesday - Oak Creek Mill and Paul Gates family


Wiki Wednesday - Oak Creek Mill and Paul Gates family




Monday we began our discussion of the Oak Creek Mill and Mill Market with an excerpt from the 1996 novel, "The Homeplace Revisited."

We learned that Paul Gates had been primarily responsible, during the preceding nine years, for restoring the Mill and making it a leading tourism attraction in the area.

In "Back to the Homeplace" we had learned the initial problems that Paul, and his wife, Beverly Bevins, had when they came "Back to the Homeplace." In "The Homeplace Revisited" we see the results of their resolutions of their problems, for each of them, and their children, Scott and Heather, as well as his daughter, Sheila.




"May each of us have a Homeplace to hold onto, if only in our minds."

Bill  ;-)
