Swan Pond/Swan Creek - Goodwin's Mills, Maine

The Goodwins Mills area is a small community - so small you might miss it if you blink driving along Rt 35 headed towards Afred or Kennebunk. Located half in Dayton, half in Lyman, the area has rich history of being great for farming and having two sawmills in the area - one on Kennebunk Pond, the other on Swan Pond.
 
From what I found, the mill at Swan's Pond was built in 1782 and contained a sawmill and gristmill, and the building and damn still stand there today. We took advantage of the deep water to try some fishing but it was still too early in the season and the fish were very timid - you could see them zinging along the surface but a seen fish will rarely ever bite.
