Historically, local industry has proven to be vital to the survival of rural communities. The former Carman Mill, also known as the Enterprise Mill, was no exception. The mill was named after the Carman family and dates back to 1784. It was powered by the neighboring Shekomeko Creek. The mill served the community of Pine Plains for nearly 150 years and processed everything from timber and wool to grain and apples. Sadly in 1936 the building was lost after a lightning strike which resulted in a devastating fire.
