Stoney Creek Sawmill

Summary

Some of the equipment in this building came from Monroe, Michigan, from a mill attached to the Loranger gristmill -- owners of a good water power site would usually try to power several types of machines with their waterwheel. This mill is equipped with a circular saw -- faster than the earlier up-and-down saws, but more wasteful and more dangerous.
