Town of Gorham Historical Society
Gorham Mill once stood at this site. This water powered grist mill was built by Levi Benton Jr. around 1809. In 1868, the village of Gorham experienced a devastating fire that destroyed several buildings, including Gorham Mill. The mill was rebuilt and resumed operation sometime after 1869. In 1941, a fire broke out in the engine room of the mill. The blaze quickly consumed the old building, severely injured the owner, and damaged surrounding buildings.
