Granite Millstone

Granite Millstone

A good friend of ours discovered this treasure while excavating a property in Spencer , MA. Its original use was as a Millstone likely used in a local mill. After retiring from its day job it rest on top of an artisan well only to be buried by decades of dirt and leaves.

It’s not often you find a millstone or a wellstone. It’s very rare when you find them both in the same stone.
