About The Red Mill
The Red Mill Museum Village is a historic museum located in Clinton, New Jersey. The museum is named after the Red Mill, a historic grist mill that was built in 1810 and is now one of the museum’s main exhibits. The museum is situated on 10 acres of land along the south branch of the Raritan River and features several historic buildings that have been preserved and restored, including a blacksmith shop, a carriage house, and a schoolhouse.
The museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret the industrial, agricultural, and social history of the region. The museum offers exhibits and programs that explore the history of the Red Mill and the surrounding area, including the Lenape Native Americans, early European settlers, and the region’s industrial development.
In addition to its exhibits, the museum hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including festivals, craft shows, and educational programs for children and adults. The Red Mill Museum Village is a popular destination for visitors to the Clinton area and is an important resource for the community’s cultural and historical heritage.
