Griffice (Griffis) Mill

We finally found Griffice Mill, a facility built well before 1800. This mill site was very difficult to locate because all of the geographical references, primarily the watercourse, had been altered over time due to development in the area and it was only by grid searching that we located it. There is nothing left except some sections of the dry laid dam. Have attached a photo (taken by my son Daniel, my partner in this venture) with me standing on a section of the dam to give you an idea of scale. The dam was about 10 feet tall at most and approximately 100 feet in length.
