This drawing shows the Clinton and Kalamazoo Canal going across the oxbow which is now called Mill
Park. It ends at the Clinton River. The area used to be the Village of Frederick. Research is being
done to locate the exact location of the mills. The records show that there were several mills but
some burned down and others were washed away in flood waters. The Moravian Settlement in 1782 was in
this area. The mill race is still there, but the canal at this point has been filled.
