Along the River
We have been including images of the Middle River long the western edge of Westbrook in different locations on the website. Including images of the creeks leading directly to the river we will now group these images here. The river is linked to the land use, water and soil issues, and recreation. Settlers relied on the river for the energy to build grist mills. The historic Buffalo mill was just about a mile down stream from the WAS. People would wait in lines to get their grains processed at the mill. A thriving community sprung up in by the mill, but disappeared with the mill.
