The Indian Mills Historical Society's mission is to restore local historical sites and educate the public on the many historical people, places and events of the area.

Indian Mills

Indian Mills was the site of the first Indian Reservation, known as Brotherton, from 1758-1801. In fact, the name Shamong, is an Indian name that means place of the horn referring to the abundance of deer that supplied food and clothing for the Native Americans that first settled there. Later milling operations were run from there, hence the name.
