Step back in time to the 1800s, when Clinton was all farmland and the Red Mill  processed cloth for local markets. While most of the farmland may be gone, the Red Mill Museum still stands out with a pop of color amongst the trees as a reminder of the Garden State’s past.

The Red Mill Museum holds a collection of more than 40,000 agricultural, industrial and domestic artifacts displayed on rotating exhibits. The property also includes a historic schoolhouse, log cabin and the Mulligan Quarry.

Special exhibits pop up during a few months of the year, including a WWI centennial exhibition and a collection of antique radios in “The Sound of the Times” exhibit.

Enjoy a special event on the museum grounds, like free outdoor yoga or a concert, or take an after-hours ghost tour, where horror junkies can hear the stories of the spirits haunting the Museum’s buildings (you don’t have to wait for Halloween). Paranormal hunting apps are welcome! Tickets are required for some events.

Current visiting hours are 10 am-4 pm from Tuesday-Friday and noon-6 pm on the weekends, weather permitting. For more information, visit theredmill.org or call 908-735-4101.
