First constructed in 1704, the Newlin Gristmill remained in operation until 1941. A large, three-story stone mill, it gristed the grain and sawed the timber for the surrounding community, and required the labor of dozens of mill operators and repairmen. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, the restored mill and its surrounding buildings are now part of a 150-acre park.
