Inscription.  This was the main industrial area of the village. To the left was a wood-frame grist mill (ca 1820) that ground grain and made feed for local farmers. Fire destroyed the mill in 1944.

In front of you was a three story stone mill (ca 1820) that filled the area along Madison Street between Genesee Street and the creek.

Over time, the building was used as a woolen mill, cotton mill, brass and a cheese factory. Much of the mill was torn down in the 1940's.

To your right almost to the creek was a blacksmith shop (ca 1840's).
