Washtenaw county offers few more beautiful scenes than the still waters of the Huron River, just below the Hudson Mills dam near N. Territorial Rd., a few hundred feet east of Dexter-Pinckney Rd. The original Hudson Mills were built in 1827 for sawing the lumber that went into the construction of pioneer Dexter township homes. Fire apparently destroyed the original mills, for history records a second building of Hudson Mills in 1846 for the manufacture of paper. Thomas Birkett, who acquired the Dover Mills in the mid-century, also gained control of the Hudson Mills about that time and operated the paper mill there.

Bridge Improvements: Walkways and new metal railings will replace high concrete railings at the Wall St. bridge when the work there is completed. The new railings will permit drivers a better view of traffic at the Island Dr.-Wall St. intersection. New construction work in that area also includes a traffic circle system at Wall St. and Maiden Lane.
