Historic Structure Report and Deed Research

Brian updated the Newlin Grist Mill historic structure report with additional data on the mill and other buildings in the historic complex and also worked to examine old deeds, making particular note of changes and improvements to the mill. Brian’s research led to an ownership history of the mill. Brian also trained in the interpretation of the mill and led mill tours. Overall, his work helped us gain a more complete understanding of how the mill changed over time. This has informed how we furnish, preserve, manage, and interpret the mill. Brian was an American Studies major at West Chester University.
