Built around 1737, what is now The New Mill Restaurant was as actual mill. Through the centuries it has served as a steel, paper, grist and cider mill, a jewelry shop and power for a neighboring manufacturer.
During the 1700’s, the Native American Quinnipiac Tribe inhabited these grounds and dubbed the area Kittemaug meaning “Place of many fishes.”
In 1945, the Old Mill Restaurant owners ran it as a tavern. A welcoming rest stop reminiscent of days gone by. Cooks would even prepare to order fish caught by patrons.
In 2007, another renovation took place, however, much of the structure you see today still contains the original beams, walls and doors.
In keeping with tradition-The New Mill Restaurant is a place where all are welcome and we will continue the warmth and hospitality for years to come.
