I bet you could go here at a different time every day for a year and it would never look the same! I love it.

I lived in Groton as a child. I have fond memories of family outings to the sawmill. So many of those memories came flooding back when I saw your photo. Thank you.

Beautiful photo. This property was previous owned by a wonderful old man named Harry Main. In 1963 I purchased a three acre parcel of land from him, which laid just ajacent to his house and mill on the East side of the mill, off Iron St. I built a three bedroom, two car garage and lived there till 1967. I visited with Harry in his home and around his mill and pond many times. Very interesting man with some interesting stories.

Respond if you would care to.

I was married there - before the landscaping. It was wonderful. Maybe we can sign our divorce papers there too!
