The Industrial Valley: 200 Years of Manufacturing on the Falls

October 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This event is organized by the Baltimore Museum of Industry and Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance. The cost of the lecture is included with museum admission.

Using photographs from the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s special collections and other sources, Nathan Dennies of the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance will trace the industrial history and legacy of the Jones Falls Valley.

The talk will cover the history of the area’s factories and villages, and tell the story of the people who lived and worked here—from the grist mills of the late 18th century and the rise and fall of the textile mills in the 19th and 20th centuries, to the lighter manufacturers that took their place and the industries of today that continue the valley’s long industrial tradition.
