Jody Claborn took this photo of the Cable Mill in the park. John P. Cable built the mill in 1870. It was one of the only mills in the area that featured an overshot water wheel, a gravity wheel which harnesses the force of gravity acting vertically on the water as it travels from the top to the bottom of the wheel.
