Rise, Fall, and Renewal: The Industrial Legacy of Hampden-Woodberry

June 6, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10

Crane, Clipper MillWe at Baltimore Heritage are pleased again to support the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance on the second in a series of walking tours, this time of Woodberry. In this small community, two giants of industry converged in the late 1800s. One was Robert Poole, the leading employer of iron workers in Baltimore, and across the tracks, the other was William Hooper, whose Meadow Mill was a monument to his textile enterprise during a time of national depression.

Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance chair Nathan Dennies will tell the story of the rise, eventual fall, and recent revitalization of this important site of Baltimore industry on a tour of Woodberry. The tour will begin outside Woodberry Kitchen and end outside Union Mill.
