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.

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.
