History

The Village was founded in 1791 by Zebulon Norton when he purchased 1,820 acres (7.4 km2) of land for the price of 12½ cents per acre.

In 1827, Hiram Finch built a second mill, which would come to be called the Lower Mill to differentiate it from the earlier mill. On May 17, 1973, the Lower Mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (building #73001200).
