Buttermilk Falls a.k.a. Smith’s Falls, Milton.

April 12, 2012

A 1797 map of Marlborough shows markings for the locations of Smith’s Mill, Buttermilk Falls, and Smith’s store along the Hudson River in Milton. In Woolsey’s The History of the Town Of Marlborough it is stated, “Leonard Smith and his son, Anning Smith, built the Smith pond, a mile above where the Mary Powell dock [was] at Milton. They started a woolen factory, and a saw and grist mill, which were in existence many years. They also had a store there, and it was quite an active place.”
