I remember hearing about it...school bus went down wheel rd. This is the first time I saw a picture
I grew up on Wheel Road in the '40s and '50s, knowing about the wheel factory but having no idea it was so recent (to an old person like me, the 1890s is recent). I really appreciate seeing this picture. Plus the Hollingsworth ownership is a surprise because they were such an old Cecil County family with industrial connections as far as Virginia, but I didn't realize there was a Harford County presence.
Guess I need to visit the Historical Society! It’s located in the “old” Bel Air Post Office building on Main Street.
That’s awesome! I always wondered why it was called “wheel rd”
A lot of these photos are in Images of America Bel Air by Bill Bates.
Made me wonder about the origins of Ring Factory Road. Was it named after the factory that made the rings for the wheels made in this factory?
Off Wheel road to MacPhail road is Maryland Country Club.
Wonder who the people are in this picture?
Awesome!! Thanks for sharing this treat this morning!
Jessica Kirby how cool!
Neat I enjoy finding out how roads and streets got their names What about Barnes St

The Society is sorry to learn of the passing of former volunteer, Bob Cassilly. Bob was a long-time member of our Archives department until his health prompted his retirement from volunteer service. He will be missed. ... See MoreSee Less
A descendant of important county farmers who became the head of his own publicly prominent family. Bob was an amazing and accomplished guy who never lacked for a quick and quirky story. When kidded that he was the Joe Kennedy of Harford County, Bob, a dedicated conservative always reacted with a wryly dismissive wave. RIP, Bob Cassilly. 🇺🇸
Wishing all of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
