With the 135th Map of the Week we take a look at Pavel's Mill, a derelict village on the River Storming in Grainland County that hardly would exist if it wasn't for the 3200-man military garrison there.
Key to the Floor Plan of the Millstream Inn
The Millstream Inn has one of the largst footprints among Slovßnski hostelries. Its foundation ľ 100 x 40 feet/30 x 12 m ľ traces back to the ruins of the old Ăsir LandamŠra Veitingah˙s (Border Inn) that stood where the Mill-stream Inn now is. However, the Ăsir hostelry was quite a bit smaller than Vendelin's inn. Where there now is a kitchen, the Ăsir had a horse stable for visitors' mounts. The 2nd story of this 30-foot/9-m wing on the inn's north side was a hay loft. Only the southern 70 feet/21 m served as a public room, with guest rooms on the 2nd story.
When the county military claimed the ruin and restored it, the entire ground floor was turned into a mess hall and kitchen, somewhat like the current layout. There were plans to turn the 2nd story into officers' quarters, but these never were realized. The 2nd story remained empty until Sßva bought and remodeled the building. He constructed the guest rooms in much the manner that we find them today.
In the years after Sßva's death, the inn became rundown again, with its condition deteriorating until the current owner ľ Vendelin ľ acquired it. He repaired and restored it, making it into a comfortable but non-luxurious hostelry, and he added a 3rd story to the complex, which includes his apartment and three rental apartments.
