The 45'X 55' limestone/sandstone mill built in 1743 and restored in 1956. The mill has been converted into a dwelling, with large decks built out on the creek side to make full advantage of the door arrangement. A very beautiful, peaceful location.GPS: 40D 7.25'N, 75D 39.31'W ele 545'/166 meters Reading Quadrangle

The stone work on the east end of the mill above seens to have new stone from the gabel peak to the ground and about 15 feet wide. Doors on the end were probably removed and the area restoned. In 1992, the folks living there said it had been restored/remodeled in 1956. Need more milling history for this mill.
