Between Beaver Brook Mills and Halfway Brook Village, was Blind Pond, which had a brook of the same name. A mile or so southeast of Blind Pond was a sawmill powered by Blind Pond Brook.
- A sluice was created utilizing the large vertical posts placed
vertically in the brook. Horizonal boards would be raised or
lowered against the posts. In this way the flow of water to the
waterwheel could be regulated.
Visible from the sawmill was a bunkhouse built by a lumber company
(perhaps the nearby St. John-Dodge operation), as living quarters for
the lumberjacks that worked for them.
