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.

Thanks Warren! I've now added your link to the site!


That was really nice info.


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