Modern technology has helped connect places of the present to mills of the past. Google My Maps has enabled 3,974 Mid-Atlantic mills (in DC, DE, MD, PA, and VA) to be compiled into one electronic resource, both on a modern map and in a searchable table.
Information for this comprehensive map was gathered from many sources, including mid-to-late 19th century atlases, directories, and county histories, as well as from archives of personal, state, and SPOOM collections.
This map is a great place to begin research about a mill or mill site in the Mid-Atlantic region.
