Amateur Photography Policy

 

Newlin Grist Mill is a treasure trove for photographers. The historic areas provide unique opportunities to photograph architecture and historic landscapes. The hiking trails wind through a variety of habitats with diverse plants and animal species. Whether you are interested in history or nature, the 160-acre property is filled with special places of inspiration in every season.

 

Amateur photographers are welcome to explore the Park and take pictures for their personal use. Photos and videos taken on the property may not be sold or used for any commercial purposes. Visitors taking a tour of the mill and house may take pictures inside, but photo shoots are not permitted in the historic buildings. Amateur photographers, individuals, and families are welcome to take images in all of the public areas, but please remember to be courteous of our spaces.

 

Professional Photography Policy

 

Professional and wedding photography is subject to a site fee of $50 (paid prior to the session) and must be scheduled through the Visitor Center a minimum of 24 hours in advance. A signed contract must be submitted, and photographers must check in at the office upon arrival at the Newlin Grist Mill property. Only one session is permitted on the property at a time. Dates fill quickly so be sure to reserve early. Scheduled sessions must be between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm. Professional photography is not permitted inside any of the historic buildings. The photography session must not interfere with the enjoyment of Newlin Grist Mill’s other guests.

 

Commercial photography sessions are scheduled at the discretion of the director. Contact our Operations & Volunteer Manager at 610.459.2359 or info@newlingristmill.org for rates and fees.

As events develop with the COVID-19 virus, Newlin Grist Mill (NGM) continues to closely monitor the situation and follow guidance from the CDC and all levels of government including social distancing and restrictions on gatherings. The NGM will be taking the following steps, starting today March 16 through April 30:

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

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

  • Pond Fishing will remain closed until further notice;

  • The Fishing Breakfast has been cancelled;

  • Rentals and photography sessions are being cancelled for this period of time;

  • There will be no Volunteer Wednesday Workdays;

  • The trails will remain open but parking is limited

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.
