Freed black people built a community near the Gunpowder River where they had been formerly enslaved in the forges. In September 1887, black and white worshipers gathered for a Revival at the old site of the forges where the railroad bridge crosses the river today, and iron bolts from the industrial operation could still be seen protruding from the rocks. The Latin words on the bridge translate "Know Your Land".
