Dana Sugar Camp

 

SUGAR CAMP - The Dana Sugar Camp was located behind the Bevan house [in Milltown]. The earliest record of the sugar camp is February, 1823. Five hundred trees were tapped at one time, where thousands of pounds of sugar were made. The older people as well as the young for miles around helped. The trees were bored, the sap collected in troughs and then conveyed to kettles, some boiled down to sugar and the rest to molasses. This continued for days and nights. They would relieve each other for sleep and meals. "Footprints"
