About Us

Newlin Grist Mill is a non-profit organization dedicated to the purpose of preserving, operating, and interpreting the historic structures and160-acre property as a non-profit organization. In an area of urban growth, Newlin Grist Mill 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.


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!


We offer unique and rewarding volunteer opportunities for people of all ages, interests, and commitment levels. Our volunteers can satisfy their diverse interests by helping in areas such as education, archaeology, special events, and natural resource management. Task-based projects that have a clear beginning and end are ideal if you want to make a difference but have limited availability. We also have seasonal volunteers who work together staffing the Visitor Center, leading interpretive tours of Newlin Grist Mill’s historic buildings, and demonstrating the craft of blacksmithing. These are perfect if you are looking for a more consistent schedule. Newlin Grist Mill welcomes individuals, student groups, scouts, and business organizations. Help us preserve history and nature at this distinctive site. See which one fits your interests best!
