This property takes its name from the nearby mill that ground wheat and corn for the residents of north Queens. The mill had three names over the course of its existence: Kip’s Mill, Fish’s Mill, and finally Jackson’s Mill. A large water wheel that harnessed the flow of the adjacent pond provided power to the mill. The road crossing the dam is now 94th Street, and the pond is now part of the Grand Central Parkway. The whole area is now the entrance to La Guardia airport.
