If you were standing here in the early 1800s, you would have been listening to the waterwheel humming away at the Windsor Mill across this bridge. This section of the Gwynns Falls Trail is built over a three-mile millrace that carried water to power the Five Mills complex near today's Leon Day Park. These mills and others alon-e the Gwynns falls and Dead Run streams helped turn the Baltimore area into one of the nation's leading flour and textile producers.

In the 1800s woolen and cotton mills were operating upstream from here in Wetheredsville. The village became known as Dickeysville after the W.J. Dickey Co. purchased the complex and provided housing (below) for its workers in the 1870s.
