Thanks to the Friends of Jerusalem Mill, on weekends you can get a glimpse of life in 1770. Friendly knowledgeable volunteers. Lots of places to picnic and several hiking trails

We stopped at Jerusalem Mill on a Sunday afternoon. We saw a demo at the forge, toured the visitor center and general store, walked to the covered bridge and cheered on an old time baseball game.

Great time on a beautiful day!

Because of the baseball game, parking was tight.

We happened upon the Mill while driving the Horses and Hounds scenic byway. We stopped in not knowing what to expect. Chris, of the Friends of the Jerusalem Mill, was doing some routine work and kindly stopped his work to tell us the mills fascinating story. His organization has done a wonderful job restoring the buildings they have. But, I keep thinking this place has potential to be so much more. It could be a mini Williamsburg!
The Gunnpowder river flows by. We heard a group of young children waiting in the stream. Seems like it could be ideal for that. There are hiking trails as well. Apparently, the stream is also open to fishing.
We spent about an hour or so, but a family could easily make it a day.

Now part of the Gunpowder Falls State Park, Jerusalem Mill and Village is a nice place to visit to catch up on some history, or enjoy the walking trails along the Gunpowder River. The property contains exhibits such as blacksmith, general store, the mill and gift shop as well as a newly restored covered bridge. Local volunteers man the exhibits and share their knowledge and talents. There are areas for picnics, and they usually host small fairs and musical performances.
My family enjoys walking our dogs along the trails which wind along the river. The trails are well-maintained and mostly flat.

This place seems like a nice collection of historic buildings, and it kind of is. However... the blacksmith shop was bristling with activity, and although we have seen many blacksmiths in action, it's always kind of fascinating, so we watched. Next was a trip across the street to the mill, which was closed. It's run by volunteers, but the person for the mill was not able to open up. So we wandered to the Miller's house behind it, and talked about muskets with a volunteer there. My 6-year-old granddaughter was not terribly impressed, and was getting a bit impatient, so we took off for two other things, which both turned out to be fun.

First, we walked down to the Gunpowder River which runs right next to the mill (as rivers tend to do), and walked along the shore, across a footbridge, and across some rocks. She loved the exploration. The next stop was the mill's general store a couple hundred yards away. Much more activity here, and there was a scavenger hunt for the kids, which turned out to be fun for her. It was a nice stop and a pleasant visit.
