  • Potter's Mill (Dyas Mill) (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

This six-story restored mill is situated on the north shore of Mill Creek. The design of the building looks back to the late Federal style. In the center of the main facade are loading doors on each floor, finally terminating in a dormer unit in the roof with its own door. There are pairs of double-hung windows to each side of the doors. A large monitor extends across the entire roof. The mill was initially designed to grind flour, but after 1900 it was used to process feed. The building has recently been restored.
