Cross the bridge over the river into Philipsburg Manor and step back in time.
This is the18th Century Mill on the Philipsburg Manor property.
Three hundred years ago, the mill at Philipsburg Manor was essential to the site’s trading and provisioning operations. Owned by a family of Dutch merchants and operated by as many as 23 enslaved Africans, Philipsburg Manor Upper Mills became the headquarters of a more than 52,000-acre estate and the center of a worldwide shipping enterprise. The Philipse family ground the grain grown by some 200 tenant farmer families. Much of the grain was traded in the West Indies for sugar and other staples that were in turn traded in England for manufactured goods. Today the mill is at the heart of Philipsburg’s educational programming. It is key to visitors’ understanding of the inner workings of the enslaved community, as well as transportation, economics, and the interplay of environment and technology.
