The Clipper Mill Building, originally known as Mount Vernon Mill No. 1, was part of the larger Mount Vernon-Woodberry Mills complex, the world’s largest producer of cotton duck by the mid-19th century, spanning from South Carolina to Connecticut. In 1873, Mill No. 1 was destroyed by fire and was later replaced by the existing factory building. During both World Wars, production thrived, supplying the military with a range of cotton-based goods, including ropes, uniforms, tents, and parachutes. After its closure in 1972, Mill No. 1 underwent various uses until its redevelopment in 2013, transforming it into a local commercial hub in Hampden. Among the organizations headquartered in Mill No. 1 is Art with a Heart, a non-profit dedicated to providing arts education to underserved children in Baltimore.
