Blow-Me-Down Mill: This mill ground grain for the community and also generated electricity for Blow-Me-Down Farm. It was built in 1891 by Charles Beaman, friend of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens whose home is just up the road.

When the mill closed in 1910, it was the last working grist mill in the area. IN 1984, the mill, pond, and hillside became part of Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.
