Chase's Mill

Where I live in Marlow on the Honey Road side of Marlow Hill, I am about equal distance to both Marlow village and East Alstead village. After painting a barn along Route 123 in East Alstead, many people from that area would ask me at fairs if I planned to paint Chase's Mill, which is a historic mill just across Route 123 from Warren Pond in a section called Mill Hollow. So, I stopped and took some pictures one day, and here is the painting. According to Mill Chase's Mill was "Built in 1919 by William Hartley Dennett, stepfather of Heman (Hyman) Chase. The earliest mill on the site was a grist mill built in 1767 by Timothy Delano. Some of stone foundations date from this earlier mill and were incorporated into the current mill. In the late 1800's, Frank Messer operated a mill here that produced shingles, chair stock, dowels, bucket handles, sap spouts, mouldings, and such items. At the dam was also a fulling mill, and below the dam, a sawmill (1770), a starch and rake factory, a triphammer shop, and a tiny spinning mill."
