The Medford Historical Society will be hosting its annual summer events throughout the summer at historic Kirby’s Mill.
Kirby’s Mill was originally mostly "drowned lands" (lands which flooded at high water). Portions of the drowned areas reached almost into the village of Medford at the Branch Street bridge.
In 1877 Kirby’s Mill was purchased by William Kirby at which time it was said to be in poor condition. Kirby’s Mill was owned entirely by the Kirby family after dissolving a partnership.
The Medford Historical Society purchased the mill property, and the township bought the "drowned" lands for park use. Kirby’s Mill was the last commercial water powered mill in New Jersey.
