Remembering The Mill as a great place to eat          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

It's a shame to hear that a piece of history (Lincoln's at that) is being left to fade away. I know that things have changed over time, but to let the gateway to the city, a place where, if you wanted a great meal (outside of home, that is), the old Mill was the place…

Yet for us 40s-plus kids, the history of Lincoln will always be there, but the faces and places will keep changing. Too bad, in today's world, history is only what you read about and not truly enjoy for the [times] to come.

Goodbye, old Mill. Maybe one day someone will leave a rock with your name on it, saying, "Here lies the old Mill. (She served her Lincoln well.)"
