Red Mill Museum Village welcomes Gina Sampaio as new Executive Director

CLINTON, NJ (Hunterdon County) — The Red Mill Museum Village has announced the appointment of Gina Sampaio as its new Executive Director.

Reflecting on his time at the Red Mill, Muir said, “When I started, my goal was to create relevance for the history we shared. Much of that relevance developed through a deep connection with the community, and we found strength through a growing significance as both a museum and tourist destination. I am excited for the future of the Red Mill Museum Village as the new Executive Director, Gina Sampaio, begins her tenure. I am sure Gina will continue to build community around the museum in addition to using her experience to create new and wonderful connections to the stories found at the Red Mill.”

“I am confident that Gina’s expertise will help elevate the Red Mill Museum Village to new heights. Our search was a comprehensive process,” said Board President Amy DeVita, “…attracting over 75 highly qualified applicants from several states. Sampaio’s appointment marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for the Red Mill Museum Village as it continues its mission to preserve the past, educate the present, and inspire the future.”

“The Red Mill Museum Village has played a vital role in cultivating my passion for telling local history’s untold stories. I am looking forward to working with the dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and Board members in continuing to uphold the museum’s mission while growing our community connections. As the Red Mill has been a source of inspiration to me since childhood, being chosen for this position is an incredible honor,” Sampaio said.
