Slade's Mill
Slade's Mill
This is the only intact building at the site of the mill by Waterhead Creek. Ruined buildings can be seen on the left nearer the water's edge. From LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) : "A corn mill called Slade’s Mill once stood here, to which a second waterwheel was added in 1817. It continued in use until the 1930s, when it was converted into a sawmill, also powered by water. The problem for the sawmill was that it used so much water that it could only run for 1˝hrs at a time. Then, everybody had to down tools and wait for the millpond to fill up again."
