In 1640 Isaac Stedman dammed up First Herring Brook and beside the pond thus formed, constructed the first water driven grist mill in the old colony. The mill owned and operated by the Stockbridge and Clapp families until 1922 was made famous in 1817 by Samuel Woodworth in his poem "The Old Oaken Bucket." In 1922 the Clapp family deeded it to the Scituate Historical Society and it was restored to its original working condition in 1970.
