While Maryland is going to great lengths to commemorate the Fort McHenry battle from the War of 1812, little effort has gone into acknowledging several Savage residents: Commodore Joshua Barney in the Battle of Bladensburg or his son-in-law, Nathanial F. Williams, in the Battle of North Point. The Williams family developed what we know today as the Savage Mill, a cotton mill that allowed our ship industry to continue when the English ransomed our fledgling country's critical resource.

Standing amid his $44 million refurbished textile mill, now nearing completion, developer and one-time mayoral candidate David Tufaro observed a bird wading in the Jones Falls nearby. "That's our great blue heron," Tufaro said. Water birds fly up and down the Jones Falls between the two sides of the mill, which straddles the stream. So he insisted that an image of one be included on the rooftop sign that faces Interstate 83, announcing the presence of the commercial-residential complex called Mill No. 1. When residents begin moving into the converted mill early next month, the valley between the Baltimore neighborhoods of Woodberry and Hampden will shift from being a predominantly industrial area to being an extension of the surrounding neighborhoods.

As reported Sept. 5, 1947, in The Evening Sun: Though water has been flowing through the cotton mill in Savage, Md., for nearly two centuries now - operations will shut down completely by the end of this year. The town of 1,200, located a mile from the Washington Boulevard close by the Little Patuxent River, is being deprived of its sole industry as the Savage Manufacturing Company goes into liquidation. The United States is losing its oldest cotton mill. Although company records only date back to 1879, James Gosneil, foreman of the spinning department, says that his grandmother worked in the plant as far back as 1845.

Despite having no professional culinary background, the couple had faith that, with a great entrepreneurial spirit and a little raw talent, they could achieve their dream. “We like food, and I like to cook,” says Karen.
