Model of the Merchants Mill
Former Occoquan Town Council Member the late Dr. James Walbert designed and handcrafted the model shown above of Occoquan's 18th century Merchants' Mill. Dr. Walbert used old photographs and drawings of the mill to guide his efforts. The scale is 1/4 inch = 1 foot. On December 8, 2011, Dr. Walbert presented the model to the Occoquan Historical Society, where it will be displayed in the Mill House Museum. This is the first and only model reproduction of the mill of which we are aware.
A special exhibit at the Museum on John Underwood -- Occoquan resident and abolitionist.
