Is this what the Mill river all about!? I always wandered were is the mill and thought there is no reminant of the old mills here. Well I like to see the mill river near Puffer Pond! Thanks for the nice picture

Can you tell me the name of the pond just to the west of Long Plain Rd. ??

George --

I would guess that virutally all of the many rivers named "Mill River" or "Sawmill River" were named that because they powered waterwheel-driven mills when the Europen settlers built and named the roads.

Thank you for asking about the pond. I believe you mean Cranberry Pond. I've just spent a delightful hour wandering along that google-path, and am inspired to get out there in the Mount Toby area with my camera and wander along the trails.
