Replica of First Rutledge & Cameron Mill
New Salem Illinois (IL), Linen unused

Description:
As early as 1828, we are told, two men, John Cameron and his uncle, James Rutledge, pushing forward to what was nearly the northernmost limit of civilization, established a mill that was both a grist and a saw mill upon the Sangamon at this point. As frequently happened, the mill served as a nucleus 'round which a town should be established and three years later there was added to the cabins of the two millers a blacksmith shop, two stores, and several log dwellings. A church which served as a school house also stood on an adjoining hill. The site of New Salem was laid out in 1828. In 1836, it is said to have had twenty houses and one hundred inhabitants. "How it vanished," one writer observes, "like a mist in the morning, to what distant place its inhabitants dispersed, and what became of the abodes they left behind, shall be questions for the local historian." One of these inhabitants, only twenty-eight years afterward, became an honored occupant of the White House.
