Jimmy Connolly displays the old sawmill whistle that now sits on
the roof of Sawmill Crossing. Connolly, whose father used to blow
it when he worked at the mill, came into possession of the homemade
whistle in 1995, when the sawmill was being torn down. "I grew up
without a watch," Connolly said. "We used to live by that whistle.
My mother always told me, ‘When you hear that whistle, you come on
home.'"
