This small set was shot the day before the rains came that created South Carolina’s Historic Flooding. The lake you see in the background is no longer there today. Roughly 24 hours after this was shot, the dam holding all that water back, broke, letting loose the waters of the Old Mill Pond, destroying much of Lexington’s Historic Old Mill, including the brew room at the Old Mill Brew Pub (a local favorite of ours here at Alchemist Imaging).
Rebuilding and repairs have been underway ever since, but it will be a couple more months before things return to normal. There is debate on whether to rebuild the dam, once again holding back the waters, or to let the restored natural flow of the newly revealed river bubble along undisturbed as it had before mankind had its way with her.
