The Kenderdine Mill, at the intersection of Keith Valley and Davis Grove Roads in Horsham, is a beautiful example of a 18th century mill. The mill was built in 1834 and remained in operation until the early 1900s. It was later restored by Ronald Mintz and was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1992. The mill and complex are currently a private residence. Registry (#91002011)
The complex includes four contributing buildings and one contributing structure. They are the original fieldstone mill (1734-1735), mill race, early 19th century fieldstone mill owner's house, stable and carriage house (1858), and an early fieldstone house. (95)
