1. Site of the Myers-Bogert Grist Mill Marker
Inscription. Abraham Myers established a grist mill at this site on the Hackensack River prior to 1765. Inherited by son John who operated the mill until his death in 1829, it was continued by his son-in-law James Bogert. Long known as “Bogertís Mill”, it remained in the family for three generations until 1922. The building was demolished in 1932 and was the last water-powdered mill to grind grain in the area.
