With the help of George Fletcher Babb, another architect associated with McKim, Mead & White, he built a gristmill, hiring Benjamin Small of Plainfield as miller. The turbines, purchased from John Tyler in nearby Claremont, were augmented in 1892 by Ernest English of Hartland, Vermont, with a dynamo in the mill and motor in the Beaman barn, producing electricity for the house, casino, and barn.
