A brief History of Mill Falls House area

In the year 1800, Richard Cartwright purchased the land where Milford is currently situated from Lt. Archibald McDonnell who received it in a grant from George III for service to the Crown. In 1808 Cartright leased a small parcel of this land along the Black Creek to Joseph Clapp who with his wife and 7 children settled there moving from their property at Hay Bay near Adolphustown. Joseph came to Upper Canada from Dutchess County near Milford NY, United States at the end of the eighteen century with his two sisters and brother-in-law settling near his brother Ben, an Empire Loyalist and married Nancy Miller nice of John Roblin also from Dutchess County NY.

In 1810, Joseph Clapp built a second mill by damming the headwaters of the Black River and forcing the upper pond water through a wooden sluice which drove an up- and- down saw used to cut logs into lumber.  In 1812 Joseph Clapp was called to the militia in Kingston and ultimately died there in the cholera epidemic.  His oldest son, Philip took over running the mills with help from his younger siblings.  Ultimately a younger son James built a third grist mill in 1845 producing flower while lumber continued to be cut by the original 6 post mill near by. The lumber came from the forest which stretched from Sandbanks to Long Point.  The Milford area became a ship building centre on the high land near the existing Murray Head farm. Once built the ships were moved on sledges during the winter down to Port Milford where they were launched on the melting ice of the spring thaw. Later several  schooners and a steamer were build at Chapman’s Landing on Black River just outside Milford and towed by oxen or horse down to the mouth of the Black River where an ingenius roll away bridge was opened or closed by a horse team letting them pass into the bay. Over the next 50 years the entire forest of the south shore was destroyed.  The current Scott’s Mill was built in the nineteen twenties using lumber from the original James Clapp Mill which after moving through generations of Clapps was eventually sold to William Byron Scott in 1888.

On the RIVERWALK you will see the places where dams were built out of huge timbers held together with steel plates and bolts.  The dams were secured to the river bed with iron stakes driven into the limestone.  You will also visit one of the ponds created by an earthen berm with huge rocks for the foundation.  Here you can see the grate which allowed water to flow through and into the pipe to the mill.

The meadow and forest around the river has been carefully allowed to revert to a natural state.  Wild flowers abound and there are a wide variety of creatures using the land. 

Birds you might be able to identify:  Lesser Yellow legs in the creek, Belted Kingfisher resting from a fishing excursion in the Mill Pond, American Goldfinches, Chipping Sparrows, Cedar Waxwings and many other small perching birds.  Listen for a Black Billed Cuckoo or a Northern Cardinal.

Some of the wild flowers:  wild mint, swamp milkweed, chicory, vipers bugloss, Queen Anne’s lace, cardinal flower, common milkweed, goldenrod, wild strawberry (leaves).

Watch for the leopard frogs, garter and milk snakes. See if you can spot any other reptiles or amphibians.
