Cultivated fields and orchards spread out on the more than 1,200-acre tract above the creek. The spring house, family home, distillery, and flour mill remains as evidence of this large working estate along Rock Creek.

In 1794, Isaac Pierce, an enterprising millwright, acquired a large tract of land surrounding his mill site. Within two decades he established a diversified plantation, adding a saw mill, a distillery, and a new and larger flour mill to his farming activities. A working household of 26 persons was required to maintain this successful operation.

A log dam was constructed above Pierce Mill to provide a reliable source of power for the mills. Read More
