New Scull Shoals Mapping Project Planned
Robert Skarda is co-ordinating LIDAR mapping of the historic Mill village site in the first quarter of 2023. A drone will fly over a grid of 400 acres and create a highly detailed elevation map without the trees. We are partnering with the Oconee National Forest archaeologists to further understand the layout of the community and how to better protect it while further educating the public about its rich history.
