Mill Pond Park - Holmes Mill Ruins

Remnants of the mill can been seen at this lovely park on Crane Street where is crosses the Alplaus Kill. Note on the historical map at the top of the page how the creek was dammed and expanded into a small pond veeering northward.

"John Holmes purchased Small Lot #3, a 5000 acre tract, an March 25, 1775. Legend tells us that he built an earthen dam and a grist-mill on the bank of the kill. He was given the distinction of being the first miller in this territory. "
