J. B. Crowell and Son Brick Mould Mill Complex

The J. B. Crowell and Son Brick Mould Mill Complex is located on Lippencott Road near the hamlet of Wallkill, New York, USA, part of the Town of Shawangunk in Ulster County. It was established in 1870 by James Burns Crowell, a fifth-generation descendant of Irish immigrants to the area, after he changed his mind about a teaching career. The mill originally made not only brick moulds but wooden agricultural implements such as wheelbarrows and oxbows, as well as children's sleds.

Two years after it began operations, many of the current structures were erected. The complex was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. It continues operating today, selling the same line of products to area builders.
