Here the natural water power potential of Old Buttermilk Falls determined not only the village site, but in 1803, the erection of Stoddard and Platt's Pioneer Grist Mill. In 1822 Herman Le Roy, for whom the town was named, replaced this with a much larger mill whose famed Genesee Flour won a coveted medal at the London Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851.

The low earthen dike forming Herman Le Roy's mill pond established the location of the Great Niagara Road, the village business district and the four successive Main Street bridges - 1802 of wood, 1823 of stone, 1855 of iron and 1908 of concrete.
