Description

The History of Patterson Mill is another great example of grist mill operation in North Carolina. In Orange County, New Hope Creek was a thriving area, as numerous land grants were issued for this basin. Patterson's mill resides within Duke Forest Preserve (Korstian Division), thereby preserving this area for years to come. This book provides a brief genealogical overview of the Patterson's as they arrive in Orange County just prior to its formation. These early Granville land grants document their purchase in 1751. Read about this family, the mill's history, and view the remnants and what they tell us. In addition, read about the amazing plan of Erwin Mill Cotton Company has for purchasing this mill and adjoining land in 1909. Also understand the role Durham and Orange County commissioners played during this amazing plan. This book will challenge tradition and folklore. This book is full of pictures, maps, newspaper articles, land plats and lots of information.
