Goldsmith’s Inlet/Peconic Gristmill 
There have been many mills in the Town of Southold. The one that stood at the top of Mill Lane in Peconic is perhaps the most remembered. It was originally built on the Sound in 1839 as a tidal mill. In an effort to increase efficiency, the owners added a tower with vanes to catch the wind in 1870. Thus, the mill used both the power of the wind and the tides. 
The mill arms were severely damaged in the Thanksgiving Blizzard 1898. The storm tore the windmill and tower from the building. According to Rosalind Case Newell, the tower was never restored. Instead, the tidal mill was used with just its original water wheel for several more years. Eventually, modern mechanization made local mills such as this a relic of the past. 
The building was left derelict, slowly collapsing into itself, until it was finally taken down in 1906. The mill is still talked about today, and the water channel continues to be of interest to many.
