A comparison of the number of water-mills in these counties with the number in the northern counties shows a significant variation in the topography of the two groups of counties. The abundance of water for the little farms and the economic advantages of the mills, which often became the nuclei of villages, rendered great service to the pioneers, who were turning an untamed wilderness into homes and villages..."--Page 1.eng
