In the mid- and late 19th century, farmers drove their flatbed wagons over the winding roads of north-central Maryland until they stopped under one end of Sam McKinstry's gristmill at Sam's Creek.There, the miller hauled their grain through a trapdoor up into the main portion of the mill, occasionally treating farmers' sons to a ride on the pulley system, while the horses rested next to the stone-and-mortar foundation.As the farmers waited for their corn and wheat to be ground into meal, they could get supplies at the general store, buy new shoes for their horses, catch up on the news of the day and get ice cream made from the mill pond ice.The now-empty mill and five surrounding buildings make up one of the few surviving 19th-century industrial hamlets in Maryland, said Carroll County historian Ken Short.

Upset about a proposed emergency services training center on McKinstry's Mill Road, about 30 residents of the Linwood area met with county officials and volunteer firefighters to voice concerns about the location. The meeting was held at Linwood Church of the Brethren, which overlooks the site of the proposed training center less than a half-mile away. The property, owned by Lehigh Cement Co., is surrounded by farms. Lehigh officials announced last month that they would donate 40 acres on McKinstry's Mill Road to the county for the center.
