Old Red Mill, Paramus

You can read all history in Bergen County Historical Society site. Landmark sighn says: Site of grist mill built 1745; scene of many raids and encounters during the Revolution. Aaron Burr was entertained here Christmas Eve commemorating his victory over British Raiders in 1776. Washington and his men often passed here. Lafayette stopped here on his return visit to America in 1825.

This historic site is being  preserved. Now it’s just old mill tower in big shrubs. It is fun but the sleeping man near wheel is not present in photos. He was even wearing earplugs to block loud snoring so he wouldn´t wake up.
