Significance: Noxontown Mill was typical of the small grain-milling establishments that predominated in Delaware throughout the colonial period. But it was atypical in the sense that it survived so long. In 1976, despite the fact that the mill had been closed for over 20 years, it was in excellent condition, and its machinery was intact. Consequently, it served well to document not only the colonial mill, but also the adaptable mill -- the mill capable of absorbing technical changes which allowed it to operate into the mid-twentieth century.
