Peter Oliver’s Mill

Massachusetts, Road Trip, States

Yes, we’ll admit it, it was the prospect of a geocache find that lured us to Oliver Mill Park but it was the beauty and the history of the place that kept us hiking around the area. It’s a place where river herring return to spawn annually, an archeological site, the location of an Eagle Scout Project, and an Eighteenth Century mill site with the attendant engineering features. It was the site of a business owned by the Loyalist Peter Oliver who was possibly a distant relative of one of Karen’s ancestors, a Minuteman and officer in the Continental Army. Is it any wonder we were fascinated?
