The facility was constructed in 1874. At the time there existed a dam on the river for the iron furnace on the site, which was another popular industry in the state at the time. The dam was raised in order to be able to increase its power potential.

Unfortunately the land on which the mill say on was flood prone, causing issues for production. Ironically it was a series of fires that eventually put the mill out of production in the 1950s. Shortly afterwards the train line that runs alongside the mill was de-tracked and subsequently abandoned. 

The mill was left to rot, and after decades of neglect very little remains of the complex. What is left, however, is quite a sight to behold.
