Originally built in 1810 by the Washington Cotton Factory to bring manufacture textile goods to Maryland, the Mt. Washington Mill is the third oldest existing cotton mill in the United States.

It later became part of a chain of seven mills in the Jones Falls Valley owned by William E. Hooper and Sons, the leading manufacturer of cotton sail cloth in the County.

After the end of World War I, declining sales of cotton lead to the sale of the mill to the Maryland Bolt and Nut Company, which ultimately ended the textile manufacturing in Maryland.

In 1989, Washingtonville Limited Partnership purchased the mill.  Renovations began with the removal of all the non-historical buildings and complex was converted into a mixed-use retail and office complex.  In 2014, the original Dyeworks building (c. 1847) was transformed to the Mt. Washington Mill Dye House event space.

We’d love to hear from you!
