Close to where I live is a piece of railroad history.
The history Written....

Part of the B&O iron Bridge still standing in 2010.
The Close up of the Bollman TracksThe Iron Supports
A view of the River through the mill.
This mill was a Cotton Mill, known as the Savage Mill.
Located in Savage Maryland.
Today it is an Antique and arts store.Restaurants sprinkle though out the old mill buildings.We enjoyed our visit there this last weekend. My daughters Early school years were down the street from the Mill. I remember going there and walking around. Times have changed in the years since I had last visited. Some new shops were added and more Eating places.
This is a place we will surely revisit again soon.

  31. I love the shots of the RR tracks & the history. My grandfather worked on the railroad and in just about every capacity (cargo trains not people movers)
    It is nice to see they are still using the old Mill building and keeping more history alive :) ~Faythe at GMT~
