A Savage Mill Photo Album

Just down the road from Autumn Walk and Emerson, Savage Mill was established in 1822 as a textile factory using water from the Little Patuxent River running over a 30-foot water wheel to provide the power for machines to weave cloth.

The mills mostly produced canvas used for sails, tents, cots, and even painted silent movie backdrops over a period of 125 years, finally shutting down shortly after World War II as demand declined.

In the 1980's Savage Mill was renovated into a collection of shops with a focus on artists, crafts, and antiques.
