In 1756 the French erected a mill on the river opposite this spot for sawing and preparing timbers used in Fort Carillon, renamed Fort Ticonderoga when captured by General Amherst in 1759.
General Abercromby used the saw mill as his headquarters during the famous battle between the French and English, July 8, 1758, the day of his disastrous defeat; and the famous old military road, over which his army marched, passed at or near this spot and through the present mill yard.
The hill to the northwest, fortified by the French and Gallent Mill Heights, was again fortified by General Burgoyne in 1777, and called Mount Hope, its present name.
