McMichaels Creek runs through the small town of Sciota, Hamilton Township, Monroe County.
But for a short distance it goes crashing over a few small falls. It was this water that made the location an ideal place to start a mill.
Brinker's Mill, a log structure, is believed to have been built in 1729 and provided grist mill services to the local farmers.
During May, the mill was open and the Chestnuthill Historical Society visited during a demonstration day.
