History of the Jones Falls

The Jones Falls is a major waterway that runs through Baltimore, making it an essential resource to early inhabitants. Starting in the late 1700s mills popped up along the Jones Falls concentrated in the Woodberry area, allowing Baltimore to become a leading manufacturer of flour and then cotton through the early 20th century. A handful of these historic mills have been preserved and transformed into mixed use buildings, including Clipper Mill, Woodberry Mill, Park Mill, Meadow Mill, and Hooperwood Mill. Visitors can trace the path of the Jones Falls on the Jones Falls Trail which runs from Cylburn Arboretum, just north of Woodberry, to the Baltimore Visitor Center in the Inner Harbor.

Woodberry has become a haven for world-class dining options, many of which are located in transformed mills or former warehouses. Woodberry Kitchen is one of the first farm- and water-to-table restaurants in the country, led by James Beard award-winning chef Spike Gjerde, Cosima is a rustic Italian restaurant known for its traditional Sicilian dishes and wines located right on the water, La Cuchara serves Basque cuisine and has garnered national attention for its extensive wine collection, and Birroteca is known for its gourmet handmade pizzas and pastas.
