Susquehanna State Park

Rock Run Historic Area

SSP_RockRunGristMill.pngHistory buffs will love touring the operational 200-year-old Rock Run Grist Mill, as well as the Carter-Archer mansion. This area also contains the Jersey Toll House which at one time was the collection point for travelers crossing the covered bridge spanning the Susquehanna River.

The remnants of the Susquehanna & Tidewater Canal can be seen here as it parallels the river from Havre de Grace to Wrightsville, Pennsylvania.
