Ruby Tuesday


old Mill circa 1800's along the Millstone river

Today is Ruby Tuesday.  Please go Mary the Teach at http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com to view many photos in red.

Kingston Mill Historic District:

This place is located a short drive from my house.   After lunch with my friend last week, I decided to try out my new camera  here thinking of this historic red building, called the mill.

This place has historical  importance.

The stone bridge was rebuilt in 1798 after Continental troops in the Revolution, hoping to delay a retreat from Princeton, destroyed an earlier wooden bridge.

The red mill  was rebuilt by John and Jacop Gulick in Kingston.

Just below the bridge is a section of  the Millstone  river.  The evidence of winter is shown in the photo contrasting flowing water and frozen tree limbs.  Will post the photo later (having some trouble uploading the photos).

    Looks like a beautiful solitary place; you’ll have to go back in spring and shoot the same scene for comparison!

      Linnea, thanks for visiting. Yes, this is a beautiful area; there is the Delaware / Raritan canal right next to this where there are old tow paths ( was for mule/barge in the 1800’s to early 1900’s) that you can take walks.
