At these crossroads, in 1853-55, a structure was erected which stood for many years as a symbol of pioneer enterprises and courage. Its site was approximately two hundred feet east of this spot. After the sugar project was abandoned, the old mill served many other useful purposes. Its life ended in 1928.
 
Erected 1930.
