Chamberlin Mill is a rare example of a water-powered circular sawmill that was later converted to gasoline power.  Located on Old Turnpike Road in Woodstock, CT, this two story post and beam building with expansive loft, is supported on a high, dry laid, field stone foundation which incorporates the penstock and turbine. This sturdy structure still houses many of the historic cast iron gears and flat belt pulleys that transferred the power of water via the turbine to the circular saw on the main level. It also houses an 1873 Lane #1 Circular Saw, now restored and reconstructed, a 1928 Studebaker straight-eight engine that allowed the Mill to continue operation through the 1960s, and an early Muzzy shingle machine identical to one that belonged to the Mill for many years.
