Schoolhouse at the Red Mill Museum | Clinton, New Jersey

Schoolhouse


Last week I showed you the Historic Red Mill at the Red Mill Museum Village in Clinton, New Jersey. 

 

There is indeed a little village at the Red Mill site, and this week I present to you the little schoolhouse! 

 

This schoolhouse was not original to this site. According to the website:

In 1974, the circa 1860 Bunker Hill Schoolhouse was moved to the Museum grounds from a site near Sky Manor Airport in Franklin Township. Former Curator Claire Young remembers that moving the school house took several days even though it was only five miles away. She followed behind the building picking up pieces of the siding that fell in the road, to replace later. Some of those boards had the school children’s initials carved in them from long ago.

There is a sign in the schoolhouse called "Rules for Teachers 1862"

The Historic Red Mill, Clinton, New Jersey

The Historic Red Mill, Clinton, New Jersey


This may be the most photographed building in New Jersey. 

 

The little town of Clinton in beautiful Hunterdon County is the home of The Red Mill, a very important building in its day.

The mill was used to make many things over the years; including wool, peach baskets, talc, and graphite.

These photos show the outside of the mill, and the last photo shows the powerful wheel from the inside.

Driving Around Belvidere . . . and beyond

Twin Mills of Belvidere, New Jersey



Last week I showed you the town square of Belvidere, New Jersey, including the Shoe Tree Oak.

This week I'm showing off some interesting buildings that we discovered in Belvidere as we drove around the town.

First up are The Twin Mills of Belvidere: The Major Robert Hoops and the Red Frame Mill. 

 

The Robert Hoops Mill was built in 1790 by Hoops for felt but later converted to a gristmill. The Red Frame Mill was also a gristmill, but owned by someone else.

As a Belvidere, NJ website says:

For many years in the 1900's, the mill and the adjacent Red Frame Mill were both operating simultaneously and independently of each other as feed mills. 


I love the little matching mailbox in front, to the left of the window. 

 

At least that's what I think it is.

Hotel Belvidere was established in 1831:

We then drove down Water Street and ended up on the Riverton-Belvidere Bridge, driving over the Delaware River. 

 

These last few photos were taken from inside the car.

We found ourselves in Riverton, Pennsylvania, a part of Lower Bethel Township, Pennsylvania.

It looked like an interesting town to explore one day, but it was getting late and we drove back to New Jersey, admiring the Delaware River as we drove over it.

We liked Belvidere so much we decided to come back another day. I'll have those photos next week!
