Shown on Oliver's map of 1830. This may have been later turned into a sandmill and worked by successive generations of the Brown family between 1833-1890- Edward Brown, his son Selby Brown and then Edward's grandson Jospeh Brown. The assumed north wall of the ropery/mill still stands on Jackson Street.
