On April 13-14 we will have a field trip to Historic Jerusalem Mill Village and Jericho Covered Bridge. You can attend either day.
A nearly intact mill village from the 1770s, Jerusalem is a perfect setting for living history interpretation and storytelling. The McCourtney building, spring house, tenant house, bank barn, blacksmith shop, and stone house behind the mill are original buildings that have been or are being restored. The gristmill was reconstructed and adapted for use as the Gunpowder Falls State Park headquarters and visitor center.
Visit Jerusalem Mill Village during the weekends to get a sense of daily life from the 1770s, when David Lee and Isaiah Linton opened the gristmill, through the 1930s, when Samuel O. McCourtney ran a thriving General Store on the opposite side of Jerusalem Road.
