Philipsburg Grist Mill is located in the village of Sleepy Hollow, New York, and dates from 1693 when Frederick Philipse of Yonkers was granted a charter along the Hudson River.
Historic mill is restored to its appearance in the late 17th/early 18th century.
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.
