Savage in Howard County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Historic Savage Mill
The water originally went directly through the "OLD WEAVE" building behind you and drove the looms, spinners equipment there and in the "CARDING" building through an elaborate system of shafts, belts and pulleys.
In 1916, with the construction of the "NEW WEAVE" building, the Mill race was diverted into the huge flume behind the cast iron bar screens, which kept debris and fish from entering the "WHEEL HOUSE" below. There the water passed through a cast iron drum 12 feet in diameter and thirty feet long.
