BIOGRAHICAL/HISTORICAL: Daniel T. Wood inherited the Spout Spring property, including the mill, from his father Isaac Wood upon his death in 1855. Wood lived at the estate, which he renamed Millbank, until his death in 1915. Because of his loyalty to the Union and his membership in the Society of Friends, the mill was spared by the Union army during the Valley Campaign of 1864. After Wood’s death, his two unmarried daughters, Clara and Mary Wood, lived at the estate until Mary’s death in 1959.
