Kirby's Mill

New Jersey Historic Preservation Bond Program
Grant Award: $51,250 (1991)
Grant Recipient: Medford Historical Society
County: Burlington
Municipality: Medford

Built in 1778, Kirby's Mill is one of the largest and oldest mill complexes remaining in southern New Jersey. Here, grain for the Continental Army was processed, and the mill became a center of commerce and information in the surrounding communities from the 18th through early 20th centuries. The mill exhibits distinctive wooden pegs and wedges and is a fine example of massive timber construction.

Grant monies funded structural stabilization and exterior restoration of the gristmill. Other sources of funding have furthered the restoration process. Upon completion, the gristmill will once again be operational.
