1. Mill Wheel Marker
Inscription. This mill wheel was donated by Jesse Baldwin and Lewis Wilkins to Leesylvania State Park. It was originally found in Neabsco Creek west of the Interstate 95 bridge. It most likely came from the Taylor Family Foundry and Mill operations (1730-1830) located in Prince William County. Henry Lee II along with his wife Lucy Grymes Lee occupied Leesylvania Plantation from 1753-1792. They would have used the services of the Taylor Mill during that time to process their corn and wheat into ground flour and meal.
