The foundation of the mill was located in the depression below the road bed. The millrace that supplied water to power the mill was built along the base of the hill and remnants can be seen today. The mill pond was located just beyond the modern Route 156 bridge.

Grist mills were essential elements of the 19th-century farming community, and their remains can be found throughout the Seven Days Battlefields.
