Abraham Faw built a grist mill here on Seneca Creek about 1790. By 1795 the mill had four pairs of grinding stones. There was also a saw mill and a tavern on the site. The mills were bought in 1797 by James McCubbin Lingan who named the area Middlebrook after one of the battles in which he participated during the Revolutionary War. The mills were sold to Col. John Tayloe in 1827. By the time of the Civil War, the town of Middlebrook had a post office, a general store, a school, two churches—episcopal and presbyterian, a blacksmith and two carpenters. In the late 19th century the mills were operated by Leonard Buxton, but had ceased all work by 1900. There is no trace today of the mills.
