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.
