A mill site where, before 1887, at its west end, gneiss was quarried for construction and evidently a pegmatite was intersected (Wells, 1887). The article mentions that "fine crystals of smoky quartz" were found (perhaps this unattributed specimen: http://www.mindat.org/photo-472700.html ?), along with a 1/4-pound specimen of bismutite, which was subsequently analyzed by Wells.
