THEN TO GET TO OUR STORY… with the Delaware River Mill Society!
1794 John Prall, Jr., became the owner of what is known today as the Prallsville Mills. This 10-building complex includes a grist mill, linseed oil mill, saw mill and granary, most dating back to the late 1700s. The buildings are considered a significant example of early American industrial architecture.
