Historic Walnford is the 36 acre Historic District at the heart of Crosswick Creek Park. This country estate and former mill village provides a window to view more than a century of social, technological, and environmental history in Western Monmouth County. The site includes a large home built for the Waln Family in 1774, an 1879 Carriage House, and assorted outbuildings and farm structures. Much of the site’s interpretation is connected to the newly restored and operating late 19th century Gristmill. Crosswick Creek Park encompasses the Historic District and 1,000 additional acres preserving the beauty and ecology of the stream and its banks as it flows through the western corner of Monmouth County.
