A past washed away

CHENNAULT, Ga. -- Beyond the lush foliage that separates an overgrown trail from the Broad River, Wayne Hubbard ambles toward the remnants of Thurmond Lake's ancient past. Up ahead, darkened by age and partially covered with velvety green moss, the ruins of a 19th-century mill rise like the icons of Stonehenge from the forest floor. "I've had people from as far away as Florida stop me on the road and ask me how to get back in here," said Mr. Hubbard, who manages the Broad River Wildlife Management Area along Thurmond Lake.
