Weddings at The Red Mill
The Red Mill Museum Village is the iconic center point of Hunterdon County. It is an ideal and sought-after setting for weddings. A historic landmark and scenic treasure, our ten acre property is nestled along the South Branch of the Raritan River and features 12 historic buildings, rolling lawns, towering cliffs, cultivated landscapes and a rushing waterfall.
