The historic Stony Brook Grist Mill was originally built around 1700, but was destroyed in a storm around 1750 and a new one was built on the same site. It is rumored to be haunted by a ghost of a pretty blonde woman wearing a white dress who is believed to have been a former mill apprentice. She is said to have a ghost dog as well, and witnesses also have noticed blasts of cold air that make the scale pendulums swing.
