Pliny Miller’s sawmill and grist mill in Saranac Lake

Pliny Miller’s sawmill and grist mill, built in 1827, was in many ways the genesis of Saranac Lake. To run the mill, the first dam on the lake was built, creating a large mill pond. The sawmill provided the lumber for many of the hotels and great camps in Saranac Lake. Date unknown. Saranac Lake, NY. Courtesy of Historic Saranac Lake.
