Red Mill/Easton Tower

This sure is a hard site to get into. I followed the directions my phone’s GPS was giving me. Until “..turn right onto Red Mill Road.” It didn’t see like a road; more of a parking lot. However, that was it. GPS rerouted me bringing me to other side that I couldn’t jump over and make a right. Had to go all way back around again. Almost gave up, but decided I needed to go there.

This site is where the Red Mill grist mill once stood. It is part of the American Revolutionary War history as well, per the sign below. What stands here now, is the Arcola Tower/Easton Tower and water mill (which has nothing to do with the Revolutionary War). And Easton you ask? Yes, Edward Easton who founded the Columbia Phonograph Company. This site and former site run along the Saddle Brook Bikeway.
