Peirce Mill–Friday, April 19 at 9:00 am
Peirce Mill is a survivor, the last remnant of a 19th century complex of at least eight mills that once operated along Rock Creek in the District of Columbia. Founded by former Quakers who had emigrated from Chester County, Pennsylvania, Peirce Mill was the core of an estate of close to two thousand acres that stretched from Linnaean Hill (near what is now Tilden Street) almost to the present Maryland border in the north. Join us for a guided tour of this historic site.
