The story

Legend has it the Tisdale Mill located in Vittoria escaped burning in the 1814 American raids because Thomas Bowlby, a pioneer mason from the district, appealed to General McArthur, also a mason, for leniency. There was a large Masonic community in the area and the community would suffer if the mill were burned, he explained. Bowlby’s appeal met with success: the mill was spared.
