The Patapsco Heritage Cultural Survey and Oral History
The communities of the Patapsco River valley
share a rich cultural history with roots in the area's mills,
family businesses, and rural ways of life. This project
preserves on tape the memories of some 60 people from Ellicott
City, Oella, Relay, and Elkridge, The Maryland Historical
Trust provided major funding.
