Old Mill has been called the most picturesque spot in North Little Rock. The actual mill, which operated in the 1800s, provided the background for the opening scenes of 'Gone With the Wind'. Today, visitors can explore the inside of the mill or sit on the surrounding mushroom-shaped benches and watch the waterwheel churn. In the spring and early summer, flowers decorate the banks of the pond. You can take in the scenery while enjoying lunch at one of the numerous picnic tables in the surrounding TR Pugh Memorial Park.
Grist mill on the first floor dates to 1828 and the mill rocks show dates of 1823 and 1840.
This spacious, green park is just across the street from the historic Old Mill. Play frisbee or volleyball, have a picnic or throw bread to the ducks in the pond.

The sculptures were created around 1933 by Mexican artist Dionicio Rodriquez, who also created the "wooden" bridge at Old Mill, which is just across the street.
