200 Years of Manufacturing along the Jones Falls

  • Roland Park Branch Library 5108 Roland Avenue Baltimore, MD, 21210 United States (map)

Presented by the Enoch Pratt Free Library Roland Park Branch and hosted by Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance.

Historian Nathan Dennies of the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance will trace the industrial history and legacy of the Jones Falls Valley from Mt. Washington to Station North.

The presentation will cover the history of the area's factories and villages and tell the story of the people who lived and worked here—from the grist mills of the late 18th century and the rise and fall of the textile mills in the 19th and 20th centuries to the smaller manufacturers that took their place and the industries of today that continue the valley's long industrial tradition.
