Notes
Survey number HAER GA-18
Building/structure dates: 1882 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1900 subsequent work
Significance: All traces of the Shamrock Mill building have disappeared. Its site between the Seaboard Coastline Railroad tracks and the Augusta Canal is a convenient parking space and dump for fishermen and picnickers visiting the nearby Rae's Creek. From the canal bank at the old "tin house gate," however, one can trace the path of the old wood sluiceway (headrace) to the mill. At the end of what appears to be evenly separated brick bases, the ground quickly descends to Rae's Creek and a jumble of twisted guide irons. These once supported the Shamrock Mill's turbine.
