The following images were taken along Alberton Road, in Daniels, Maryland in Patapsco State Park. The town was a mill town, located on the Patapsco River, which changed names many times, depending on who owned the mill. In the 1940s, the C.R. Daniels’ company bought the mill and the entire town. To continue living in the town, a household member was required to work in the mill. The mill owned the post office, the general store, multiple churches and any form of entertainment in the town. In the mid-1960s, the mill decided to no longer provide housing to people who worked in the mill. By 1968, the mill gave notice that it was closing within a few years. By 1972, Hurricane Agnes arrived and destroyed the rest of the town by flooding.

 

 

 

 

These images were taken over a period of 3 years, from 2016 to 2019. Many household items and old cars are still easily found in the area today.
