Mission Statement

In an area of urban growth, the Foundation maintains open land as a refuge for plants, animals and birds, and for the people who come to enjoy them. In an era of high technology, it offers visitors insights into the vanished life of the rural eighteenth century. This two-fold objective of environmental and historical concerns is combined in a single theme wherever possible. Following the ideals of its founder, E. Mortimer Newlin, the Foundation will strive to enhance its service to the public, while securing its future by managing its finances wisely.

Description

The Newlin Grist Mill and the surrounding 160-acre park is a place for exploration of both history and the environment. With its working grist mill, programs, and nature trails, the Newlin Grist Mill is where learning is fun! Whether you are interested in history, education, the environment, meeting new people, or just looking for a new experience, there is a place for you at Newlin Grist Mill!
