MILL CREEK POINT (WHEN IT WAS A MARINA)
One of Secaucus' early grist mills, built around 1840, stood on the left bank of Mill Creek.
For half of the 20th Century, the property functioned as a marina, boat ramp and as a popular town pub, Tony’s Old Mill Inn, thought to built on the remains of the former gristmill.
