To build the mill thousands of stones were hauled from the nearby farms.The town’s center is full of shops and offices housed in 18th and 19th century buildings.There are two historic districts: Liberty Corner, which was a summer resort colony, and Franlin Corners, where town’s earliest farmers and millers lived and worked.
