The current gristmill at Greenbank was built in the 1760s as a merchant mill, to export flour. In 1777, when Washington arrayed his troops across Delaware in an effort to stop the British from invading Philadelphia, it's said that the general posted a guard at Greenbank to protect the provisions. Improvements to the mill in the 19th century kept production flourishing until the 1960s, when an arson fire devastated the business. The non-profit Greenbank Mill Associates formed and began restoration in 1987. The site is now open to the public as a living history museum.
