The Nicholas Newlin Foundation seeks a Site Manager. The private, non-profit foundation maintains a collection of ten historic buildings including the 1704 gristmill, working blacksmith shop, and a research archive situated on 160 acres. The organization has a dual mission of historical and environmental preservation and education.
The Site Manager is responsible for the preservation and maintenance of Newlin Grist Mill’s buildings, archaeological resources, grounds and all associated equipment. The Site Manager will oversee preservation planning, creation of historic structure reports, periodic inspections, project planning, and work with maintenance staff to complete maintenance projects for the various structures. The foundation’s structures include a working millrace with canals, dams and gates.

Responsibilities include maintaining the 8.5 miles of trails, protecting the foundation’s environmental resources, overseeing public safety and site security, and completing all paperwork associated with these duties.
The Site Manager must be enthusiastic and possess the manual skills required for historic property maintenance. The Site Manager will be required to work well with other staff and oversee outside contractors. Extensive practical maintenance experience in historic structures or a Bachelor’s degree in Preservation, Museum Studies or a related field is required.
