Here in St. Mary’s County, the first county established in Maryland, a small cotton town (Great Mills) grew up beside the Clifton factory. Built in 1812, the original water-powered textile mill was powered by the St. Mary’s River producing woolen and cotton goods, as well as milling grain and cutting lumber. After the soil no longer supported a substantial cotton crop, the mill was closed and its machinery moved to the Savage Mill.
