Historic Conwell Mill Pond For Sale In Eastern North Carolina


Have you ever dreamed of owning a historic mill pond or your own lake? Historic Conwell Mill Pond is for sale and waiting for its new owner. This 86 +/- acre income producing property has great potential and multiple uses for the new owner. Currently being used as a home site with a beautiful log cabin overlooking the historical Conwell Millpond that was established in 1857. During the civil war, many skirmishes and battles were fought near this Millpond and in nearby areas.  Earthworks and cannon sites are still visible in one area of the property. There are two rental homes on the property.  One is a home built on the original foundation of the old grist mill. The other small rental home with a 20' by 24' metal garage and workshop. Fishing has always been a part of the Millpond history and the old store still remains on the property that served fisherman for many years selling bait, tackle, coca cola and nabs to its visitors and fisherman. Fishing memberships are now purchased by 8 members who enjoy catching the brim, speckled perch, and bass that are plentiful in the pond. This serves as another income stream for the new owner. Wildlife is seen in abundance and daily around the pond with bear, turkey, geese, deer, and ducks. This lake has a flooded timber area at the head of the lake that has served as a waterfowlers dream for many years. Redheads, mallards, and wood ducks have all been harvested from this area of the property. There could be lease potential for the new owner for waterfowlers to add income production.
