The mill was located on Stony Creek’s west branch and was dammed for waterpower and the pond used to float logs. Earlier there were a number of sawmills and tanneries in Bleecker operating by waterpower. The site was marked in 1976 during the Bicentennial by the Town of Bleecker Bicentennial Committee and Town Historian Eleanor Brooks.
