Eden Mill Nature Center is a nature center in Pylesville, Maryland.[1]

History[edit]

The center was a gristmill in the 1800s. The name comes from Father Eden.[2]

In 1917, it was made into a power plant by remodeling the dam, as it continued to function as a mill up until 1964. In 1991, Harford County purchased the center with the purpose of converting it into a park.[2][3]
