Before you is the reconstruction of the Hurd and Briggs double sawmill. Efforts to reconstruct a working mill for educational and historic preservation purposes began in 2008. This is the site of the original mill. The actual foundations and race dam are still visible to your front and right. The original Hurd and Briggs double sawmill was purchased from Joseph Fellows in 1845. The mill functioned as both a lumber and grist mill. Also contained in the mill structure was a shingle and cheese box factory. Clark W. Hurd owned the south saw while Joseph B. Briggs owned the north saw. Repair expenses were shared between the two. The millrace was built on land that was previously used by Native Americans as a cornfield. This site also contained a board shanty named "The American". This building was used for storage and temporarily housed the workers who built the mill and dug the race. Estimated Footprint of Original Hurd and Briggs Lumber/Grist Mill.
