Cross River Design Creates Facility Master Plan for Historic Prallsville Mill Complex

In the News

You probably never heard of one of the most visited New Jersey state parks – and why that’s about to change! The historic Prallsville Mill complex to be exact!

Located in a picturesque rural setting alongside the Delaware River in the historic town of Stockton, New Jersey, Prallsville Mills is a significant multiple structure complex dating back to the early 1700’s. The mill site (which include 10 buildings) itself has managed to escape the ravages of suburban sprawl that has compromised so many historical treasures in the state.

Cross River had been retained to create a Facility Master Plan for the Prallsville Mill complex. The plan will be a comprehensive document that catalogues historic and existing resources and conceptualizes future projects to enhance the property’s historical significance and improve the public’s user experience.

The mill changed hands in 1794 and was purchased by John Prall – a successful Revolutionary War Lieutenant. Shown here is the second floor of the stone grist mill with mill components still in tact.
