Powered by the neighboring Claverack Creek, Barton’s Mills was built at some point prior to 1804. It changed hands a number of times before the namesake of the mill, Solomon Barton, purchased the property in 1874. Several generations of the Barton Family owned and operated the mill, which served the local community by processing timber, grain, and apples. While time has passed and the geography has changed, the mill still stands much as it did when it was first built and and continues to be situated on private property. In 1990 underwent extensive restoration in order to preserve it for future generations for years to come.
