I have a real soft spot for Stone Mills Township. I grew up in Newburgh, and spent time with friends, played sports and visited all corners of the municipality in my youth. Needless to say, I’m very familiar with the villages and hamlets that make up this wonderful township and I’m lucky that my job frequently takes me back to each of these communities all these years later.
Stone Mills is home to many entrepreneurial-minded business owners and each of them work very hard to serve their loyal customers. No matter which community you live in or are visiting, chances are you’ll find what you’re searching for, or maybe something even better.
As spring arrives, more of these businesses are opening for the season after a winter break. We’ve put together a list of some of the best that Stone Mills has to offer… unique, interesting items that you may not find anywhere else. We’ve also included some tasty dining options too, because it’s much more fun shopping on a full stomach.
We hope that this list helps you find that perfect gift for the loved ones, and keeps your hangryness at bay.
