OK, Mike, come clean. I live about an hour south of you and neither had I ever known about this mill. Does it have a name? GPS coordinates? Better general location than "an hour south of you"? I want to play, too. I'd love to get a few shots like you excellent images here.

Great shots of a wonderful mill - what a find! Hope you have the opportunity to get there in Fall; I'm sure it would make for spectacular images.

I chase old grist mills that still have their water wheel active or at least in place. I've been to Babcock State Park in WV, Mabry Mill in VA, Clinton Mill in Clinton, NJ, a couple of mills in VT. Recently I discovered a really nice mill only about an hour south of where I live. In thirty years of living here, I never knew about it although I had driven within half a mile of it on numerous occasions! This past Saturday it finally found it's way onto an SD card in my camera.


Really lovely shooting Very peaceful, soothing scenes

Go to google maps and search for Delaware Quarries, Inc., in New Hope. You'll find Cuttalossa Road a few feet north of that. It's a tiny road right off River Road. A few minutes north of that on River Road, just above Point Pleasant, you can see paint on the rocks next to the road showing how high the river got in the devastating flood of 1955. If you go south from there you will come to Phillips Mill, where there is a stop sign at the corner of the mill building before you get to New Hope. The mill wheel is gone and the building is now used for the arts.

While you're in the area, and if you want a difficult history challenge, try to find the real House of Decision. That is where General Washington made the decision to cross the Delaware River on Christmas Eve in 1776 to attack the British and Hessians in Trenton. Hint: it's a stone house on a small road between a narrow bridge and a blind corner. Have fun! The house at the nearby "Washington's Headquarters Farm" burned maybe a decade or two ago and the house is now a modern house that doesn't look like the original.

Thank you. Bobby 123 has posted a good descriptive way to find the place. When headed down to get there I was afraid of having to walk through slushy/muddy snow for a ways to get to the mill. Come to find out it is right beside the road -- you could almost photograph it from your car!

Thanks for the detailed description! Now I'll have to find that Washington House. Here in the Lehigh Valley there are a number of places that have Revolutionary War significance. The Sun Inn in Bethlehem is a restaurant run by the students of Moravian College. George and Martha Washington stayed/dined there. A church in Allentown is where the Liberty Bell was hidden so the British wouldn't capture it. One of my favorite signs was on a small barn now used as a garage. It was in one of the little river villages along the Delaware -- not sure, but think it was on the NJ side of the river -- the sign read: George Washington's horse slept here.
