Black Rock Mill, located on Seneca Creek, was built in 1815. It was a substantial three-story stone building with the millstones on the second floor, the flour hoppers to catch the ground grain for bagging on the floor below. The bags of raw grain or corn were hoisted by pulley to the upper floor where the grain was poured down funnels, chutes and gates to guide the grain gradually between the two grinding millstones.
