The Kingston Mill Historic District is made up of the Greenland–Brinson–Gulick farm, four nearby houses, the eponymous gristmill powered by the Millstone River, and the Kingston Bridge, an 18th-century stone arch bridge over the river. It was one of the first settlements in Princeton, New Jersey, preceded only by the Quaker community along the Stony Brook.[2]
