Rental Information

This air-conditioned, historic mill is available for public rentals. Adelphi Mill has a warming kitchen for use by the caterer of your choice. Only one function is scheduled per day at Adelphi Mill, so the renter has the flexibility of choosing any 11-hour time period, to end no later than 12 am. A full day, 16-hour rental option is also available (see fees below).

In order to rent any facility, the renter must first become a verified SMARTlink customer and provide valid proof of residency, age and ID. Click here for more information on becoming a SMARTlink customer.

Note: clients reserving a rental facility by phone must confirm rental agreements using electronic signature via email. Clients must have access to email during the reservation phone call as the agreement will be emailed for signature at the same time. Rental agreements will not be finalized until the emailed document is verified and electronically signed by the client. All fees and deposits are subject to change. All rentals made through the Park Permits Office must be paid in full at the time of reservation.
