This dam behind the mill operated by William I. Smith (1867-1934) provided a pond to float logs to the chain which pulled them into the mill to be sawn. The spillway also served as a source of waterpower for the mill.
In the spring the rapid snow and ice melt caused the frigid water to course over the dam.
