1. The Algonquin Mill Marker
Inscription.  The Algonquin Mill was named for an Indian camp site near the settlement which is now Petersburg. This structure, built about 1826, replaced an earlier mill. Originally operated by water power from Little McQuire Creek, it drove two sets of burrs. In 1880, it was converted to stem. At its peak, it produced 25 barrels in 24 hours, grinding wheat, oats, corn and buckwheat. It was in continuous operation until 1938.
 
Erected 1971 by Carroll County Historical Society.
