Last week, we featured a photo of the grist mill located at Vine Hill. The mill was powered by Trout Brook. Charles M. Beach purchased this property in 1859 and developed a large dairy farm. The Beach family farmland was eventually given to the town and became Beachland Park.
Jeff Murray guessed that it was Trout Brook, north of Farmington Avenue.
