I was on a quest to locate the oldest local building still standing.
I thought I had found it...
A mill built in 1690.
But it seems,
the mill was rebuilt in 1820.
I asked a local historian
who did not know...
So, I am just going with this old mill.
The land on which it stands
was purchased by a British army officer from William Penn.
The officer's son, Edward Farmar, built the first mill on the site.
The second mill was built by Joseph Mather.
Today, the mill is in disrepair
and is structurally unsound.
