Interesting Fact: The last operating saw mill (Slater's Lumber Mill) continued to produce lumber well into the 1970s. It was located along the Grindstone Creek behind the Knox Presbyterian Church at the corner of Mill Street North and Church Street. Today, only remote foundation ruins of the mills remain, although a lookout over the falls is in place.
