Post SAWMILL / ROCK ISLAND was there a saw mill once?
Anybody know if Saw mill rd off rock island ever did in fact have a sawmill on it? ive looked at historical maps and can find nothing. I see
Rock island had cotton mill on it during civil war period oddly. I also see that Rock Island was large island taking up most of what comprises the area now between the landing at the Belmont marina just north of reflection point and then ended about where those Magnolia apartments are at end of Rock island rd. The island disappeared when they raised dam 30 ft in 1926. Oddly the lots on Saw Mill were "parceled off" prior to 1926. The deepest part of the lake there hugs sawmill for that was the original channel and gets shallower obviously , where Rock island was.. and then there was another channel hugging the gaston cty side
