Two hurricanes converged in CT dumping an unmanageable amount of water on the state. As evidenced by the debris caught on the roadside fence, the east branch of Salmon Brook rose above Silver St., and in the process lifted the grist mill off its foundation and sent it downstream, leaving the 1915 bridge as a hearty survivor. A "burrstone" from the mill can be partially seen at bottom middle edge of this photo. Two such stones were used in the mill. One is now at Salmon Brook Historical Society.
