One of the first grist and saw mills operable in Nacoochee was built across the Chattahoochee River from the present site of Nora Mills. It was operated by Daniel Brown. His home was located a short distance away on the same side of the river as the mill.

In the late 1880's John Martin purchased the mill site as well as extensive gold mining property in Nacoochee. He built the two story house (Martin House) across the river from the old mill site, rebuilt the dam, and constructed a new mill building on the same side of the river as his house. That mill building washed away in a flood and the present mill building was constructed at the same site by Dr. Hardman.
