Overview

Join Baltimore Heritage and Ms. Tracey Brown, long time Woodberry resident and neighborhood leader, on a tour of this charming former mill community. Two giants of industry converged at Woodberry in the late 1800s. There was Robert Poole: the leading employer of iron workers in Baltimore, and across the tracks, William Hooper, whose Meadow Mill was a monument to his textile enterprise during a time of national depression. Learn the story of the rise, eventual fall, and recent rebirth of this important site of Baltimore industry. Plus get updated on the recent movement to designate Woodberry as a Baltimore City historic district. We will be touring sections of TV Hill, Clipper Mill and Brick Hill that are thriving today as they were in the mid-nineteenth century.
