Please join Camden Parks and Recreation for the dedication of a new interpretive sign located at One Mill Park on One Mill Road in Camden County on Tuesday, May 15th at 10 a.m. The area known as One Mill, located in south Camden and on the Pasquotank River, was home to the Pasquonoke Indians prior to European settlement in 1650. In the 1700s, Issac Guilford constructed a windmill to grind corn and wheat for local farmers. Camden County was home to seven windmills and was rafted fifth in North Carolina. Many of these windmills were destroyed by hurricanes, fell into disrepair or become obsolete by the 1900s. The millstone at One Mill was found and donated to the Camden Parks and Recreation Department by Alex and Sandra Leary.
