When in the following year King George III banned shipments of gunpowder to the colonies, Eve was left with a monopoly on the commodity. The mill was the first American Powder Mill to supply the American Revolutionary War.
Before and during the early American Revolution it was operated by Eve, then by his son Oswell Eve, Jr., then by others.
This mill has a unique history of its own, just as other powder-mills also have a unique history of their own.
The building still stands but has long since been devoted to other uses.
