Earth Day

In May 2012, Newlin Grist Mill held its first Earth Day event with an amazing turnout of volunteers who worked on a variety of environmental projects. Each year, we look for groups, individuals, adults, families, and youth volunteers to help preserve the Park’s diverse ecosystems.

Tasting Through Time: A Historic Dining Experience

Explore history through your taste-buds! Participants will enjoy a five-course dinner with accompanying drinks while learning about the culinary traditions of the past. This is a fundraising event to support the restoration of the 1739 Trimble House kitchen & pantry at Newlin Grist Mill.

Race for the Mill 5K Trail Run and Walk

Come out to Newlin Grist Mill for our annual Race For the Mill 5K trail run and one-mile walk. Proceeds for this event will go toward the rebuilding of the flume and waterbox that provides water to our 1704 Grist Mill.

Archaeology Festival

This festival features a full day of hands-on activities. Visitors will be able to work with professional archaeologists and assist with three different excavations; sift, clean and process artifacts; and see artifact displays from around Delaware County. There will also be a variety of activities designed for kids. We look forward to having you join us and discover how archaeology is done and what we can learn from it!

Fall Harvest Festival

A local favorite, this event provides fun for the whole family with demonstrations, family activities, shopping, and food! 

Tavern Night

Tavern Night is a one-of-a-kind evening of 18th-century food, drink, and music. Participants will enjoy the warmth of the fire as they delight in a selection of flavors and aromas representative of those found in a colonial America tavern. Period music, a live auction, and games will provide entertainment for the evening.
