Introduction to Public History

Ashley and Taylor worked at Newlin Grist Mill while fulfilling requirements of a University of Delaware Public History Internship course. Their joint goal was to explore options available to public history professionals while gaining hands-on experience in museums. They completed an artifact inventory of the Miller’s House using collections-management software. They also participated in several smaller activities in support of educational programming.

Historic Structure Report

Anne worked on a historic structure report of the Newlin Grist Mill. The project included measuring drawings; documenting construction methods, materials, and past uses; creating a timeline of renovations and maintenance; and compiling the information into a report. This internship provided an opportunity for Anne to combine her interests in structural engineering and historic buildings, while creating a report that supports the interpretation, maintenance, and future preservation of the mill. Anne was an engineering major at Swarthmore College.

Message to Our Community


In light of current conditions, Newlin Grist Mill continues to be closed as follows:

  • The NGM Visitor Center, Archive, Blacksmith Shop, Millwright Shop, and public restrooms remain closed;

  • All tours, programs and events have been postponed or cancelled during this period;

  • Pond Fishing will remain closed until further notice;

  • Rentals are being cancelled for this period of time;

  • There will be no Volunteer Wednesday Workdays;

  • The trails will remain open, but parking is limited; and we ask that everyone be mindful of social distancing when on the property.

Decisions concerning additional closings will follow based on the developing situation. Please check back for updates.

While the trails at Newlin Grist Mill remain accessible while the site is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we do want to remind everyone of a few things:

  • Continue to observe proper social distancing when you are on the trails. If you are ill or have been around anyone who is ill or has been exposed to the virus, please remain at home. If you arrive and find that the parking lot is crowded, please postpone your visit to another time.  

  • Please remember that all dogs must be on a leash that is held securely by the owner at all times. This is a township law, and it is to protect the health and safety of all park visitors (human and canine) and the wildlife in the park.

  • The park contains unique habitats that are home to sensitive plants and animals, some of which are being monitored through ongoing scientific surveys.  Please stay on the trails to avoid disturbances (wading, dip netting, collecting, rock throwing etc.) that could damage wildlife and vegetation. 

  • Remember that collecting of any kind, including plants and animals, is prohibited in the park.

We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.
