The McKechnie Mill was built around 1897 or 1898 by the McKechnie brothers of Princeton. The mill was situated in Indian Township on the shore of Lewy Lake just north of the bridge from Princeton on the left side of the road. In the 1907 edition of the Maine Register L. McKechnie & Son were listed as manufacturers of box shook, lathes and long lumber.
