1. Mulzer Mill Complex Marker
Inscription.  The grist mill and, at times, an accompanying saw mill were operated by a series of owners starting around 1817, but none more successfully than Herman Mulzer who operated the mill from 1977 until his death in 1906. In the later years, Herman’s son, George Mulzer, was a partner and continued to operate the mill for a few years after his father’s death.
