History & History Related Items

Savage-Guilford history:

Savage was named for John Savage. He was a Philadelphia merchant who had interest in the mill on the Patuxent River. He established the Savage Manufacturing Company here in 1822, making sails and other duck products. The textile industry was important in savage. Mills along the Little and Middle Patuxent Rivers drew their power from the falls. Cotton was shipped here from the Southern ports and then taken first by mule and oxen and later by rail to savage. In 1887, a spur line was laid out to the factory and the Bollman Truss railroad bridge was moved to its site here. Both the mill and the bridge are on the National register of Historic Places. The iron bridge is the only one of its type in the world. The savage Mill also had an iron foundry and was expanded in 1880 when steam power was added. Though not operating today as a mill or foundry, a renovation project has revitalized the Savage Mill as a marketplace with art, crafts, antique and much more.
