Trip Advisor Delightful & Peaceful Place to Visit
Jun 12, 2014 by: NYEMUG1 from New York City, New York
Not far off of I-95 we stopped off for a place to picnic lunch and relax on a trip to Baltimore. Very picturesque, The restored mill was open at the time. Different than most, the water wheel is inside and uses water diverted from Gun Power run to power the mill. Trails are nice and the covered bridge at the end of the trail is a classic. We stopped of on a weekday morning.The park is always open but none of the other restored buildings were open when we were there. You may want to call first to see what's open if that's what you are going for.



Trip Advisor Nice little place; recommended

Quaint little former mill village from the revolutionary war era to the early 1900s with costumed reenactors. Has about 4-5 restored historical buildings including the gristmill, general store, carpenter shop, blacksmith all along a nice stretch of the gunpowder. A half mile trail leads people to all of this as well as one of the few covered bridges left in MD. Reenactors are engaging , interesting and gear their talks to the age of the audience. Nice family outing for maybe 1-2 hours.



Trip Advisor Nice family day!

We hike the trails frequently as a family since they are not too difficult for the grandboys (under age of 5) and parents (over age of 70). Trail maps are always available. While the trails are usually busy with other hikers, it is still enjoyable. Trails are clearly marked and clean. Nice views of the stream and trees. We have spotted wildlife like deer, birds, snakes, turtles, fish, and spiders. The historical aspects of the mill are very educational. Volunteers dressed in period of time always make the stories interesting and FREE!! Parking may be somewhat challenging unless you know it is OK to park in the field next to the general store. Our car has been blocked in several times by others who tried to squeeze in to the marked parking lot.

Beautiful restored Mill! They have a number of Living History weekend affairs that are alot of fun...and educational to boot. The covered bridge is neat and rumor is the area around the bridge is haunted........



Trip Advisor Better Than Williamsburg!
May 19, 2013 by: TravelMaven613 from Baltimore, Maryland
A wonderful experience thanks to the devotion and generosity of the volunteers who bring history to life with passion and investment of their time and money. Great experience for all ages; can easily be combined with a visit to other partss of Gunpowder Falls State Park. An easy drive from Baltimore or 95 travelers. Beautiful scenery - wonderfully maintained. We felt it was more enjoyable than Williamsburg and it was free!! We encourage you pack a lunch and head out on a Sunday and meet some incredible people and experience authentic Maryland history. Since the village is located right on the Civil War Trail, you can really appreciate what a rich past this area has to offer.
