The River Mill, built in 1873, is located along the San Joaquin River in French Camp, California. Originally a processing mill for chicory to be used in coffee, it has seen many uses over the years. The owner purchased the property in 1972 and in the early 90’s, after extensive renovations, began offering The River Mill for conferences, seminars, luncheons, dinners and special occasions.
As you enter the landscaped grounds, you are greeted with peaceful gardens, a walkway lined with roses, crape myrtle and a variety of vegetation. Eight raised beds, framed with brick, are filled with sculptured privets with white lights and seasonal flowers. Massive native oak trees add to the atmosphere and provide cool shade.
