The dismantling of Anderson-Tully's Mill D at the railyard in downtown Vicksburg is nearly complete. Tearing down the front part of the mill has exposed what looks like the original building that existed on the site, an old brick building that I can only guess at its age. You could always see portions of the building when the mill was active, but it is a pretty impressive building now that all the infrastructure around it has been cleared away. It has some beautiful brickwork. It will be sad to see this portion of the mill come down; the birds who have made the holes in the brick walls will have to find new places to dwell. Click on any of the photos to see the detail in the brickwork.
