Inscription.

Pictured in 1870, Dickinson House was originally built by American born Moss Kent Dickinson for his business and was modelled after Abraham Lincoln's house in Springfield, Illinois. The house ultimately became home to the Dickinson, Spratt and Watson families who owned and managed the Mill for close to 150 years.

Photographiée en 1870, la Maison Dickinson fut d'abord construite par un natif américain nommé Moss Kent Dickinson, pour son commerce, selon un modèle de la maison d'Abraham Lincoln, à Springfield, en Illinois. Par la suite, la maison devint la résidence des familles Dickinson, Spratt et Watson, propriétaires et gestionnaires du moulin pendant près de 150 ans.
