This historic site in Milton, New York was where Edward Hallock established his mills between 1760 and 1770. Following a trail through Cluett Schantz Memorial Park, you can see remnants of the Hallock family’s mill site.
Edward Hallock traveled with his wife and 11 children from Long Island to Milton in 1760 and between 1760 and 1770, he built a grist and sawmill on the creek here. Hallock also built dams on the stream, which are still visible. These dams helped created Hallock’s pond. The family mill was also used to produce flour that they sold during the Revolutionary War. Being Quakers, the family remained neutral during the war and sold their flour to both the British and Colonial armies.
