Hewitt's Sawmill

hewitt's sawmill

Visit the archaeological site of a water-powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. Walk over the mill dam and see where the sawmill once stood that cut lumber for structures still in use today in St. Augustine. Slaves built the dam, the mill, tended the oxen and mules, cut and hauled the trees, and sawed them into boards. See the vestiges of The old King's Road that once connected colonial St. Augustine to the colony of Smyrna.
