You might want to visit the Treman State Park in Enfield (southwest of Ithaca, NY, in Tompkins County) and see the mill there. They may also have a website (NY State Parks?).

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.
