The 1860 Watson’s Mill, a working mill and museum that still sells stone-ground whole wheat flour, has a ghost story. The spirit here is Ann Crosby Currier, the wife of Joseph Merrill Currier, a mill co-owner. At a party there on March 11, 1861 to celebrate their honeymoon, Ann’s dress caught on a mill turbine, and she was flung against a pillar and killed. Ann’s ghost has been seen here many times since.
