Regarding The Miller's Cottage. Built into the side of a hill on a promontory overlooking the Hawlings River valley, this small gable-roofed fieldstone cottage once served as the miller's house for the old Brookeville mill that dated back to 1794. The mill foundation is on adjacent property down the hill. Although reconstructed and remodeled in 1966, the miller's house retains its distinctive massive external stone chimney with a large brick stack, wood shingle roof and gable ends, and 6-over-6 pane windows. The porch was built in 1980 on the original foundation of a wooden addition. Among the many period features of the interior is the walk-in fireplace with crane on the lowest level. -- Town of Brookeville Walking Tour Guide, Hahn and Unglesbee.
