Located on the outskirts of Philadelphia along the Wissokicken Creek is the old Rittenhouse Paper Mill Town, also known as Paper Mill Run where paper was made in the early 1700’s.
This is what remains of the Creek that powered the Mill. I have no idea what the building is in the background. This area was not open to the public, so I could not walk around here.
One of the old homes that were built around 1702.
Another home built around the same time. These buildings are showing there age, but still, stand after 300 yrs.!
The Main House where the owner of the Mill lived. It is still in use to this day.
It was darn hot when I shot these images. I ran into a big problem while walking around here. I had to use the bathroom real bad. The problem was that there was none to be found! Not one public bathroom or Porta Pottie. I could not believe this. A public place like this had nothing! I finally found a place in a small Cafe, but there was nothing for the public to use! Only for the volunteers. I asked to use it, and my wish was granted! Thank goodness for that or I would have to use the wooded area nearby.
Thank you for stopping by.
