Built in 1826 by Nathan Cooper, the Cooper Gristmill is one of the few 19th century mills left in the township. It is still functioning and features two 2,000 pound stone grinders that are turned by a large water wheel. Blacksmithing, stone dressing and other events are held at the mill during its operating season from spring to fall. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
