The mill was originally established by Don Diego Caballero de la Rosa, who was councilor of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic and Haiti).[1] The sugar mill at one point had a church with full clergy and approximately 60 stone houses for its population of African slaves, Indians, and Spaniards.[2]
