In the early 18th century, Herr’s Mill was an important neighborhood center. Not only was it a place to stop between trips, but it was also a place to purchase supplies and exchange news for locals and visitors alike. The Grist Mill and the Village functioned throughout the 1800s and into the turn of the century. 1929 was the last year the Grist Mill operated.

The roots of Mill Bridge Village trace back centuries ago, to a time when the coastal settlements of the New English-Claimed Frontier in North America existed in isolated packs.

Back in the early 1700s... Little communication existed among the colonies, and many of these new civilizations appealed to immigrants from Mother England. It wasn't until William Penn came and invited all different kinds of people from any nation, offering land ownership, and religious freedom to them.

Against this grand backdrop, we find the foundation, and rationales for the development of Lancaster County and Mill Bridge Village. Fleeing persecution in Germany, Bishop Hans Herr brought the Mennonite faith to North America in 1710. He settled his family not far from what we know today as Mill Bridge Village. Mill Bridge Village would then later be founded by Hans' son, John Herr.

John Herr, a miller by trade, possessed a true pioneer spirit. By 1738, John had built his 'Gryst' Mill to serve the Strasburg community. The mill was much more than a place to grind grains, over the years it became a trading hub for the public! And eventually, a blacksmith's shop. At one point, it was even a wagon shed.

Today, Mill Bridge Village is a full-service 21st century RV Park, welcoming everyone to her beautiful property, so they may relax and enjoy themselves, all while adoring her historical charm.
