Abraham Dickerson built a sawmill here on a branch of the Dwaarkill in 1767.

In the 1760s, Abraham Dickerson came from Long Island to the Hudson Valley. Dickerson married Anna Mould and purchased land on the Ten Thousand Acre Patent, where established a sawmill that led to the area being called Dickerson’s Mill, but by the end of the eighteenth century, the mill ceased operation due to decreasing water power.
