I decided to get off of the well beaten path. I followed tracks from deer and bobcats into the woods. Around a bend I saw the land open up to where beavers had made a pond. To my surprise, hidden behind a little knoll, below the beaver dam, there sits this old mill site. Upon closer inspection this site is pretty large, even in comparison to sites I have seen in Weare and Dunbarton. I will return another day when I have more time to explore the stone ruins beyond the mill site. Sometime during the last century or two, there was quite a sizeable operation in this spot I found. Now, the animals make the only tracks around this place, and the water still flows where it’s supposed to as far as the mill would be concerned. It was a pretty cool find on a little walk in the woods.
