About This Community

 

Settlers began to arrive in the Owings Mills area in the early to mid 1700's. The Owings Family bought land in Greenspring Valley and Samuel Owings built three mills along the Gwynn's Falls. After some time the Upper Mill was sold to Thomas Groff (Groff's Mill Drive), and the Lower Mill was sold to Will Painter (Will Painter Drive) and the name was changed to Painter's Mill.

 

Mining was a big industry in the Owings Mills area in the 18th and 19th centuries and several of the road names in and around Soldiers Delight Park (Flint Hill Dr. Gold Hill Rd. and Isinglass Rd) come from that industry.
