“To give life a meaning, one must have a purpose larger than self.”

The Waterwheel at the Gomez Mill House is a part of the complex history of the Hudson Valley, New York, USA. It is the site of a Native American Ceremonial grounds, a frontier trading post, and the earliest extant Jewish Residence in North America.
It was built in 1714, and lived in continuously until 1984 when purchased by the Gomez Foundation, dedicated to restoration and preservation.
It is located in Marlboro, New York, USA and is open for tours.
Ironically enough the mill, waterwheel, and dam were not damaged from the floods, the grounds surrounding this part of the historical estate though, were totally destroyed, with not one parcel of land or gardens as they once stood.
