On an old atlas, a Fetteroff family owned the farm property across the road from the mill, barely visible through the trees on the photo.

The open slot in the stone wall is either the channel for the headrace to the mill, or part of the wheel pit. The hub sticking out of the mill may have had an exterior waterwheel attached.
