Audubon Saw and Grist Mill was built in 1816 by John James Audubon and his brother-in-law, Thomas Bakewell (Marker #1645). It was a 45 foot by 65-foot stream mill that cost $15,000. Audubon supplied over half the money. It operated for two years and then failed due to defective machinery and scanty wheat crops. After the mill failed, Audubon devoted his life to painting and found success. The mill was later used as a tobacco warehouse until it burned in 1913.
