Nathan Selee's Satanic Mill

Nathan Selee inherited a sawmill from his father, John. According to an official state sign at the sawmill site, Nathan was "a wizard who purportedly used satanic imps to run the mill at night," making him a great deal of money from unpaid labor. Local legend asserts that Nathan met with the devil, who left his footprint on a rock.

Nathan and John are buried in the Selee Cemetery near the sawmill site on Mill Street. The devil's footprint is on private land near Center School. Please respect property rights.
