Glen Mills is an unincorporated community within Concord Township. The area was originally inhabited by the Lenni Lenape People before the William Penn land grant in 1681. This residential community sits approximately twenty-five miles west of downtown Philadelphia.
It was originally settled by George Cheyney, a Quaker who the nearby community of Cheyney is named for. The land was later divided and sold off. The name Glen Mills derives from two paper mills built by the Wilcox family, one in 1836 and the other in 1846. The mills specialized in an innovative, patented paper that they sold to the United States government to print bonds and notes. Neither of the mills stands today.
Nicholas Newlin came to Pennsylvania from Ireland seeking religious and economic opportunities in the winter of 1682. His family settled in Concord Township and in 1704, Nicholas’s son Nathaniel constructed a grist mill known as the Newlin Grist Mill on the west branch of Chester Creek. Until 1941, this mill continued to operate and sell flour products under several different owners.
It now sits in a one hundred sixty-acre park that has been set up by the Nicholas Newlin Foundation and is a place for exploration of both history and environment. The park has become a favorite picnicking spot for many locals. You can enjoy nature at the mill in Glen Mills.
Glen Mills is also home to the Golf Course at Glen Mills. Designed by the famed Bobby Weed, the golf course is connected to the Glenn Mill Schools. The facility is used to train students in golf operations and turf management.
