stamps: glade creek grist mill

Image from:

With this stamp, the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates one of West Virginia's most photographed landmarks, the Glade Creek Grist Mill. 

Located in Babcock State Park in Fayette County, West Virginia, the mill looks as though it has existed on that site for hundreds of years. In reality, it is a modern re-creation, completed in 1976, of a mill that had once stood nearby on Glade Creek. The look is authentic, however, as the new mill was constructed from parts taken from three historic West Virginia mills. 

Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp with original art by Dan Cosgrove.

The Glade Creek Grist Mill stamp will be issued at the Priority Mail® price.
