This great statement was true in the early and mid-1800’s when Woodberry and adjacent Hampden thrived as mill towns, and it remains true today. Homes dating from the 1840’s to 1920’s are listed on the National Historic Registry and stand harmoniously with newer townhomes and ultra-contemporary park homes.
Many of the Woodberry mills have been converted to studios, condos and apartments, while other buildings continue as commercial use. The Meadow Mill building, seen from I-83 houses an athletic club, a local theatre troop, a candy maker, homebrewing supplier, and various commercial office spaces. The beautiful Shiloh Church, also seen from I-83, dates from 1850. Clipper Mill’s Woodberry Kitchen and adjacent artist studios, Artifact Coffee, Union Brewing, and many others are major destination points, with Druid Hill Park and the Jones Falls Bike Path offering recreational opportunities for local residents.
Woodberry remains a quiet community with easy access to I-83 and the Light Rail.
