Welcome to Jerusalem Mill Village, the home to Gunpowder Falls State Park headquarters. The mill here originally functioned as a grain mill from 1772 to 1961. The historic town buildings include a grist mill, blacksmith shop, gun shop, springhouse, and general store. This well-marked hike has much to offer, including historical sites, views of the Little Gunpowder River, and a covered bridge. A calm overwhelms you as soon as you enter the quaint and historic village of Jerusalem Mill, one of the oldest preserved mill villages in Maryland, located in Harford County. This area, rich in history, had a gun shop that supplied muskets during the early part of the Revolutionary War. Military reenactments sometimes take place here. The calm continues as you head into the woods for a nature hike. You’ll find the trailhead in the meadow behind and to the left of the Jerusalem Blacksmith Shop.
