From the History of Mercer County, 1877, page 480:

"The woolen mill of Daniel Bruner & Son was begun in the third week of April, 1862, and in six weeks (viz., June 14) was in running order, the timber for the structure having been cut, meantime, from the woods, and put into form for service. A dwelling house was also erected within the same period. The mill is still in operation [1877]."
