Day two led us on a morning hike along Mill Race Lane. The original millrace once extended for 3700 feet from a dam across the creek to a millpond where water could be gathered to start the water wheel of the mill. In the 1850's, William C. Winters built a saw mill and later a grist mill that were powered by the Cypress Creek. The mills served the community for miles around. The hand dug millrace canal or channel is still visible along the road. Although the mills are now gone, the grinding stones are still in Wimberley and located at the Ozona Bank near the city park and bridge.
