In 1810 Zachariah Waters built a grist and saw mill on that tract. It was also used to press flax seed to linseed oil, used in the manufacture of paint. The Mill stopped operation in 1895. In the ruins of the mill, pieces of a French Burr millstone have been found. This is a millstone commonly used to grind flour.
