New Jersey Mills: What Ever Happened to Them?
Monday, 1 October, 7pm
Ridgewood Public Library

More than a thousand water-powered lumber, grist, cotton, and woolen mills provided food, shelter, and clothing in New Jersey in the nineteenth century. Over the decades, some of those mills were converted to other uses; may fell into ruin; and others simply vanished. Surprisingly, a few still function today. This program examines the current state of many of the mills built in centuries past.

All welcome, no registration required.
