Rock Run Grist MillSusquehanna State Park Quest
"Through the Eyes of the Past"

Introduction To Quest

During your quest at Susquehanna State Park, you will be taking a look at the history of the area through the eyes of people that lived and worked here. As you walk the Historic trail, reflect on the past.

Remember that each character that you meet through this journey made a contribution not just to their time, but also to the present day Harford County.

Let your imagination run wild! Imagine that you were here in the late 1700 and early 1800’s. Imagine the hustle and bustle of a town. Begin at the Mill (801 Stafford Road) and follow the purple blaze to each numbered historical location. Stop and read about the location from your packet as the history that surrounds you unfolds. Answer the scavenger hunt questions on the sheet to get your stamp.
