The location where Bushkill Creek meets the Delaware River was orignally settled by James Sawyer, and eventually became known as Saw-Mill Rift, named for the rapids nearby. The Erie Railroad established a crossover for passing trains at the location and nicknamed it Turnover. The United States Postal Service opened a station there in 1884 under the current name of Mill Rift. The Erie Railroad bridge still stands across the Delaware River and is now owned by Norfolk Southern Railroad and currently used by the Central New York Railroad for local freight service.
