An earlier mill known as the Old Graves Mill was built on this site c. 1776 by two Tories named Groff.
A stone seyt in the wall is inscribed with "ELB.G" and "I. Groff 1781". This could mean that the foundation is the same as the earlier mill.
This present mill is listed on a 1862 county atlas as G. Dodrer's Mill.
Mill has been somewhat upgraded.
The doors rise vertically in the middle of the long side towards the road with a catshead or sack hoist above the 4th door in a dormer position.
The mill is 40'X 50' and 3.5 stories in height; the first story is fieldstone while the other 2.5 stories are frame. GPS:39° 39.74'N, 77° 4.39'W 492' elevation
