Old Stone Row by the Old Mill

There's an old late 1600's mill near where I live, associated first with the Minor Family and then later the Atwood Family. John Minor was the Indian Interperter and Military Leader of the Pomperauge Plantation who made the first treaties or Land Deeds with the Nonnewaug Band of the Pootatuck Indians. About 1710 or so his grandchildren traded this property to the Atwood Family, descendents of Jonathon Atwood, Woodbury's first doctor.
This is a stone row on the south side of the river, opposite the mill.
