This water wheel was originally built for Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Peacock of Mendenhall Ms., in 1948 and was donated by them to this park in 1971.

  The wheel was built for the purpose of generating electricity by water power that operated a Delco generator. This electricity was utilized to light nine 50-watt bulbs over five small minnow ponds located below a large lake that furnished water to turn the wheel. The energy produced here is intended to be used to operate the grist-mill.
