Significance: The Kingtown Mill is an example of nineteenth century, small industrial construction in New Jersey. The mill is an unusual example of an early nineteenth-century manufacturing facility that was later adapted to other purposes but retains many of its original features. As a property type, this structure is rare in New Jersey because it was built for the manufacture of linseed oil. Although not all oil mills were recorded, there appear to have been relatively few of them in New Jersey in the nineteenth century, and in 1860 there were only two other oil mills listed in the industrial census. It is historically significant as the last operating water-powered linseed oil mill in Hunterdon County, and one of the last in the state of New Jersey. The Myers House and the Warehouse are contributing features of the Mill site.
