Regarding Ellicott’s Mill. The Mill House has been recognized by the Daughters of the American Revolution, Bill of Rights Chapter, as a deserving and eligible site for a marker. The “Merchants Mill House” was orginally recognized in 1970 and a plaque placed on the outside of the Mill House. The original marker (see picture 5) was stolen in 1996. In June of 1997, the Chapter and Historic Occoquan bought and dedicated a new marker jointly and placed it inside the Mill House building (see picture 6).
