The buildings at Clipper Mill originally housed the Pool & Hunt Foundry and Machine Works, at its peak the largest machine shop in Maryland. The company forged and fabricated a vast number of iron and steel industrial components, from giant water wheels to battleship turrets. The columns for the peristyle of the Capitol Building in Washington DC were fabricated here, as well as the columns of the Hampden library. In 1996, a tremendous fire claimed the life of a firefighter and damaged a number of buildings. After years of vacancy, the development firm Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse tackled the large site with a preservation and rehabilitation focus, and brought in new residents and businesses, today including the Corradetti Glassblowing studio.
