With some of my house projects behind me I had a chance for a long ride including a visit to Clinton. Clinton is nestled in the hills of Hunterdon County, New Jersey. It is a quintessential American small town that attracts many visitors. A charming historic shopping area, cherry tree lined streets, a beautiful red mill, and a river meandering through it makes Clinton a picture perfect hamlet.
The old truss bridge that spans the Raritan River was constructed circa 1870 overlooks a 200 foot wide waterfall which separates two old grist mills; Clinton's landmark Red Mill (built in 1810), home of the Hunterdon Historical Museum, and the Stone Mill, which houses the Hunterdon Museum of Art.
