On Saturday, May 6, 2023, at 2 pm, the Historical Society is partnering with Jerusalem Mill to host a special Speakers Series event at Jerusalem Mill, 2813 Jerusalem Road in Kingsville. Participants will meet at the Mill for a guided tour of the Mill and the surrounding village. This National Register site is a unique Harford County treasure, one of the oldest, most intact mill villages in Maryland, and possibly the entire country. The tour will be led by Rich Albright, Vice President and Curator of the Friends of Jerusalem Mill who will describe the Mill’s role in both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, the importance of the Mill in the county’s development, and tell the story of one of Harford’s first female doctor who made her home in the village.
Along with its historical significance, this 18th -19th century village is one of incredible natural beauty, situated along the Little Gunpowder Falls and housing one of only six remaining covered bridges in the state. We encourage you to join us for this outstanding opportunity to get up close and personal at one of Harford County’s treasured attractions.
The tour will be limited to the first 30 people who sign up. Tickets cost $15 and registration is required. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable attire as we will be walking for about an hour and a half.
