FROM GARY LIPPINCOTT, THIS UPDATED
VIEW OF MY POST BELOW, ALSO GARY'S INTERESTING COMMENTARY.
As you follow Church Street to the top of the hill, this is where the intersection of Church Street and Route 156. Route 156 at this time it was know as the Bordentown-South Amboy Turnpike, Chartered February 16, 1816, becoming Park Street as it entered Bordentown, along the Railroad Tracks.
The road forked just past the Crosswicks Creek, the right fork was the Bordentown-South Amboy Turnpike, the left fork is now known as Hogback Road, which continued on to the Bordentown–Crosswicks Turnpike, a privately maintained road, the Toll House is still on the corner. These were the two main roads to Bordentown long before Route 130 (Route 25, before 1953).
Sorry, I get carried away, now back to the Grist Mill
Below is a receipt for grain purchased at the Grist Mill, March 12, 1918
I have since received the communication above from my friend and Groveville Historian Gary Lippincott; thanks Gary!
