Red Mill Museum Village to HOst Popular Chost & Folklore Tour
Our popular Ghost & Folklore Tours are back! A job in a 19th century mill or quarry was dangerous work – sometimes accidents happened and people died. No one knows for certain, but many believe the buildings of the Red Mill Museum Village are haunted by spirits of those who labored here years ago. Many visitors, staff and volunteers have had experienced strange encounters they can’t explain. Join us for a special after-hours tour in the dark to hear the stories of the ghosts that are said to inhabit our museum. Afterwards, enjoy a private viewing of some of the more macabre objects in the museum’s collection. Not recommended for young children - parental discretion strongly suggested.
Cost is $15 for museum members and $20 for non-members. Space is limited, advance reservations required. Tours at both 8:00pm and 9:30pm. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the Red Mill Village Museum's Website

  “NJ Diners”, with Michael Gabriele
“The History of Diners in New Jersey,” written by New Jersey author and historian Michael Gabriele and published in 2013 by The History Press, tells the story of New Jersey’s diner business and the evolution of the American diner phenomenon.
New Jersey is universally recognized as the “Diner Capital of the World.” Friendly, familiar beacons on the Garden State’s highways, byways and downtown business districts, diners play an important role in New Jersey’s culture and community life, and serve as the ultimate egalitarian dining experience. Gabriele’s book gathers important pieces of the historical puzzle (people, events, places, dates, facts and figures) and assembles them into a cohesive narrative that traces New Jersey’s diner history.
Along with tales of noteworthy diners of the past and present, the book pays tribute to New Jersey as the diner manufacturing capital of the world during the 20th century. This was the period when diners were designed and built in factories as engineered products—much like cars and planes. The Garden State was the production hub that built thousands of diners during the 20th century—the distinctive, streamlined, stainless steel gems that are admired around the world and recognized as iconic examples of American industrial design.
More than just roadside attractions that serve coffee, pie, hamburgers and French fries, diners are a vibrant part of the state’s culture, history, commerce and mythology. Many classic, factory-built, stainless steel diners have survived and continue to operate throughout New Jersey as landmarks and architecturally significant structures in the state’s “built landscape.”
A lifetime Garden State resident, Gabriele has written three books on New Jersey history. The most recent book, “New Jersey Folk Revival Music,” was released in December 2016. The first book, “The Golden Age of Bicycle Racing in New Jersey,” was published in 2011. Gabriele has been a journalist for more than four decades. He is a 1975 graduate of Montclair State University; a member of the executive board of the Nutley Historical Society; and serves on the advisory board of the Clifton Arts Center.
