The park has very nice walking trails along the brook and there are benches around for a 'sit down' (if needed). There are plenty of trees, so you can visit in the heat of the day in the summer. There are also picnic tables available and a bathroom near the visitor center. A very pleasant place to take a stroll.... More

Stopped. y this little gem after having driven by earlier in the week. Very old historic site and interesting to see a place over 300 years old. Those who are Irish might appreciate the story here as well. Mill, trout pond for fishing, walking trails, shady areas to sit and think. Right off a busy highway but still feels quiet... More

I get around to all the walking/hiking spots in the area. The Newlin Grist Mill is great for families or a solitary hike. If its your first time here, take the Mill and buildings tour. View the hand dug canals and think of how all this was constructed decades before the Revolution. Most people "mill" about the building complex, but... More

As it was the middle of the week, I was the only one there for the 2pm tour of the mill and the miller's house. There was so much to see and to learn about. The mill is in fantastic condition, and the docent was very knowledgeable about the local history and the history and operation of milling. I hadn't... More

Such a peaceful feeling when walking through the beautiful trails. Take the time to stop to see the wonderful masterpiece Mother Nature brings us in this serene locale. It gives you a different perspective on how marvelous nature can be and also how times were several hundred years ago. Sometimes you can even feel positive friendly energy amongst certain areas....

For those unfamiliar with the workings of a grist mill which still working since the 1600's, doesn't get any better. The power of the huge wooden wheel when running is truly impressive. When built, there were no mill manuals but just clever, ingenious tradesmen who took ideas and created a fantastic blend of metal & wood powered by the water... More

They offer tours of the property for $5 per person, but otherwise it cost us nothing to visit. When we were there they also had a blacksmith performing an interesting demonstration. Have a look at their website to see what else currently is going on. The buildings are interesting, but we spent most of our time walking the trails throughout... More

I love visiting historical places and this was no exception. The grounds are very well taken care of, the facility is in great shape, and this is just a nice place to take the family and relax around a historical landmark. it's on either side of a mildly busy road, so hold the kids hands, but this is well worth...

Just a fun place to take the kids or the adults too. They have many summer programs but love the homemade ice cream one. Cool place to just take a walk through and slow down a little in life. Take the phones out of your hands and just stroll through time. The well needed rest feels great!
