I believe that there is a working mill by the creek in Van Hornesville,
Herkimer County.   It seems as though there was an article about it in the
newspaper a few years ago.  We also had a number of them here in Montgomery
County, some of which we have pictures of in our postcard collection.  If
you would like more information, please let me know.

  Subject: 19th century waterpower

  Greetings to the List,

  I am working on a paper about 19th century waterpower, and it's impact on
society. I have been scanning the net for web sites related to this topic,
but would like to find all the working grist, saw and any other mills in New
York State and our neighboring states.

  I also would like some ideas on books or papers that could help me
understand how these mills impacted the local economy.
