Gunsolly Carding Mill

The Gunsolly Carding Mill operated from 1851 to 1890 using the Rouge River as it's source of power to produce and untangle wool for spinning into yarn. This mill was important to the surrounding villages. Farmers would come to the mill with the wool from their sheep, including a young Henry Ford who visited the mill often with his father and their wool.
