A bucolic retreat from the 21st century. Great place for a picnic and to learn about rural life in the 1800s. The mill is operational on weekends. Sit back on the rocking chairs on the front porch and enjoy the tranquility. Learn about how a 19th century mill operates. Other locations to visit in the area are the Grounds for Sculpure, the Hindu temple in Robbinsville, and Princeton. Good bike touring in the surrounding countryside. Nearby food recommendations: The Moth Coffeehouse, Allentown and there's an excellent Italian restaurant in Crosswick's village.

We have visited Historic Walnford many times. We have been there in the winter, spring and autumn. Each season brings a different charm to the place.

Sarah, the Park Ranger, is wonderful and she has come up with many interesting programs to highlight different occasions in the life of the Walnford's so that you really get a sense of what it was like to actually live in the home.

They also have a Facebook page so that you can keep track of the events that are planned.

While out for a ride on a warm Feb. day we came upon Historic Walnford. We walked the grounds and went inside the Mill and the house. The Mill and the house have been restored very nicely and there was a park Ranger there that would answer any questions you may have. She was very friendly and told us to return in the spring when all the flowers are in bloom.

This historic site is a true gem of American History. The site was in private hands until 1985 when Monmouth County took it in hand. The grounds are nice. The house dates back to approximately 1773. The 'new' grist mill was reconstructed after a fire in 1873. It runs with all the pulleys, gears, stones and noises working just fine.
