Title Kapps Mill Water Wheel
Description Kapps Mill Waterwheel, picture taken around 1970 or 1975. Information on the back of the picture says that levers controlled the flow of water (water gates) to "flutle" wheel. Mill race runs beneath the mill. Those levers operated the water gates under the mill at the end of the millrace. They therefore controlled the flow of water to the "flutle wheel."
