Inscription. In 1844 the Shakers of North Union, Ohio, built a five-story gristmill on the north side of the Doan Brook Ravine adjacent to this marker. Water from the dam at the west end of the Lower Shaker Lake powered the mill. For many years it served the needs of farmers in this area. In 1886 the mill was sold to Charles Reader of Cleveland who destroyed it with dynamite as part of an Independence Day celebration that year.
