Printz's or Old Swedes Mill
In 1645, some 35 years before Penn's Arrival , Swedish Governor Johann Printz built a grist mill ("Norse" or "Splash" mill) in what the indians referred to as Karakung and we know today as Cobbs Creek, next to the Blue Bell Inn. The mill was the first water driven mill in what would later become Pennsylvania and the site can be called the birthplace of Pennsylvania industry. 
A PHMC Marker was dedicated on October 18, 2008
Note: Recent research indicates that the Minquas Path did not follow Island Road but folowed a more direct path, between Powers Lane and Jones Lane, to the terminus
The Mill  was a "Norse" or "Splash" mill. There is a model in the Hagley Museum and an example in the Mercer Museum in Doylestown
