Was there really a rope mill at Olde Rope Mill Park? Indeed there was. In the mid 1840s, it was the site of a grist mill. However, by the 1870s, the facility was manufacturing rope. The dam and stone raceway provided water power to the mill, which remained in operation until 1949, when it was closed and dismantled to prepare for the formation of Lake Allatoona. Visitors today find interpretive signs that explain the history of the site and impart an idea of what it was like when it was in operation.
The park is located near I-575 at the Ridgewalk Parkway exit (the same exit as the outlet mall). From Ridgewalk Parkway, follow Olde Rope Mill Park Road (just east of I-575) to its end.
With lack of early record keeping, there is no accurate number of deaths at this mill location.
