Just north of Lambertville, alongside the Delaware River, sits the tiny Victorian-era town of Stockton, named for U.S. Senator Robert Field Stockton, who was instrumental in the creation of the Delaware and Raritan Canal. The Canal is now a State Park, with recreational facilities sure to make any outdoor enthusiast happy. The 19th century Prallsville Mills Complex, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is part of the Canal.
Here you can take a trip back in time and enjoy the view of the original saw, grist, and linseed mills and tour the John Pralls Jr. Historic Manor House. Concerts, art exhibitions, antique shows, holiday parties, and private events draw a wide audience to the Mill. Campers will enjoy the nearby Bulls Island Recreational Area, a forested island space, sitting among towering sycamore and maple trees. Come and enjoy today’s treasures in this lovely town with a yesteryear feel.
