This is wooden relief carving of a mill that features a stone wall with a wooden gate, a mill wheel, a stream, and pine trees. The natural wood shows through rubbed-on green colors.

After W.D. Neher and his wife moved to Chenoa from Arkansas, he became the community’s resident photographer for four decades. However, Neher is best known as a woodcarver, producing many scenes from a single board using nothing more than a pocketknife, screwdriver, and sandpaper.
