081919 STN Stillman Avenue Mill marker stone 1848.jpg

Stonington Department of Public Works employee Joe Ferraro squats Monday next to the 1848 marker stone located in the rubble of the former Connecticut Castings Mill buildings at 75 Stillman Ave. in Pawcatuck. A portion of the building collapsed into the Pawcatuck River in April after a violent storm weakened the roof, and the town ordered the demolition of the building. A worker from Standard Demolition Services of Trumbull, Conn.., uncovered the stone and notified First Selectman Rob Simmons. The stone was brought to the town's highway garage for safekeeping, according to Simmons. Courtesy of Rob Simmons
