Notes
The Brooklin Mill was built in 1848 by Robert Campbell and is considered one of Ontario County's first flour mills. The original mill was a rectangular shaped building made out of brick. It operated as a mill from 1848 until 1991. In 2002 the Brooklin Mill Montessori School opened in the old mill.
