The Newlin Grist Mill is a private non-profit organization dedicated to historical and environmental preservation and education. The mill was constructed in 1704 by Nathaniel Newlin – a prominent member of the Quaker community who settled in Concord Township 1683. The mill continued operation until 1941 grinding grain for international markets and later the local community. Today, the mill represents the intersection of industry, agriculture, and daily life in the 18th century. Visitors will experience the lives of those who lived, worked, and conducted business at the Newlin Mill, including the supporting trades and technologies.
Newlin Grist Mill offers a variety of choices for exploring the site – guided and self-guided tours, demonstrations, workshops, and special events. Visitors can discover both history and nature throughout the 160-acre property, 8 miles of trails, and collection of historic buildings – working grist mill, miller’s house, blacksmith shop, and outbuildings. Newlin Grist Mill also holds several annual events such as Fall Harvest Festival, Tavern Night, and Summer Discovery camp. Call for information about group and school tours.
