A new settlement in the sixteenth century required three things in order to be self-sufficient: a minister, a blacksmith, and a grist mill. Millers were offered special inducements, free land, and tax exemptions, among other things. Edward P. Hamilton looks at the mills of early New England and the villages that needed them so.
