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. Visitors are welcome to take images in all of the public areas, but please remember to be courteous of our spaces.

Formal Photography Policy

Formal 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. Formal 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.
