One place to start might be Philip L. Lord, Jr., "Mills on the Tstatswassa: Techniques for Documenting Early 19th Century Water-Powered Industry in Rural New York: A Case Study" (New York State Museum: State Education Department, 1983)

  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.
