Do you by any chance have picture of Guyton’s Mill which would have been near Guyton and Bottom Road?

Today one of Harford County's fabulous nonprofits, Coaches for the Community, worked their magic at the Society helping us with some heavy lifting and hefty organizing. Thank you, Coaches, for contributing to our renovation efforts. We are super grateful and one big step closer to our grand re-opening in 2022. ... See MoreSee Less

All the cars in the photo appear to be from the 1930's.

It is with great sadness that the Society acknowledges the passing of Dorothy Stambaugh, who devoted over 30 years of volunteer service to our organization. Dorothy started with us when we were still housed in the basement of Southhampton Middle School and served right up through the summer of 2019, when she was hard at work responding to our donors, helping with the annual yard sale, assisting as corresponding secretary and cataloguing our ever-expanding collections. Dorothy was a stalwart supporter, a community builder, and a treasured friend. And she will be sorely missed. ... See MoreSee Less

As near as I can figure, it’s should be at route 1 at Winter’s Run. I believe Mr. Coale was the Miller at the Archer Mill, if I read it right.

The mill was located on Pleasantville Rd but when the new bridge and relocate road was done in the early 50s it passed through the site of the of the building in the photo. Known as the Hanway Mill it was during the 19th century the voting place for the District and is shown on the 1858 map of Hartford County. Shown as a saw mill it also served other functions. Portions of the head race still exist as does the remains of a stone dupex house that is not in the photo. The white house was located in the area between the old and new roads.

Where was this located? I did an internet search with no luck, and sadly I do not have the book on HarCo mills.

Today's PHOTO FRIDAY is of Old Prospect School located between Level and Darlington on Route #161. Pictured in front of the building is C. Milton Wright.
