Additional Details:
In 1758 we come to an important event, not only to the town, but especially for Winchendon Village. The Proprietors offered one hundred and twenty dollars and a lot of land to the person or persons who should build a grist mill township, keep it in repair and grind for lawful toll for ten years. The next year, 1759, Bartholomew Pearsons built the mill in the village. This is about ten rods below where the bridge now stands, near Goddspeed and Whyman's establishment.
