Inscription.  This was a home with a view.
From this residence, built here in 1875, the manager of the Northville Mills Company could look out to the mill building, located where the parking lot is now. Rouge River water from the nearby millpond flowed through the narrow canal, or "mill race," turning a water wheel and millstone to grind corn and grain.
 
Erected by Northville Historical Society.
