I took a tour of Grove’s Mill yesterday. They said this is the oldest continuously operating water-powered mill in the United States.

Here are some pictures.

I added the mill and the millrace to OpenStreetMap.

  1. In the UK a man-made water course that is to feed to a water mill is called a leat. Maybe we need waterway=leat in OSM, though that will not render at the moment. Another way might be to use waterway=drain because that is man-made and add drain=leat as a descriptive tag. This will render and meet most data consumers’ needs but add extra detail too.
