George Jos 1808 trow_Small

In 1804, Joseph George and family settled the area at the north end of Lake Sunapee. Joseph and his son Daniel ran a gristmill powered by Otter Brook flowing into the lake. Joseph served at the Battle of Ticonderoga in 1776 and owned a playful monkey which he took with him on “calls”. George’s Mills was named for the family.
