Site of Nesselroad's powder mill which operated from 1795 to 1801. To the south on King's Creek stood Hartford's grist mill which served local settlers in early 1800's. In 1823, Swearingen's grist mill and Eaton's saw mill were built near the same site. Nearby is the place where brothers Andrew and Adam Poe, border scouts, fought and killed Wyandott Chief Big Foot in 1781.
