2. Chase's Mills Marker
Before electricity was discovered water power was used to turn the mill wheels that produced the materials needed by man. In early days Benjamin Chase owned and operated many of the following mills that came and went at this location. They included grist mills, paper mills, sawmills, planing mills, cider mills, a leather mill, glove manufacturing, shoddy mills and a small knitting mill. This marker was placed here by the Broadalbin Kennyetto Historical society in 2011 to commemorate this early commercial hub of the Broadalbin community.
