Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mill Creek rises in Montgomery County and runs for five miles (8 km) in a southeastern direction to the Schuylkill River where it debouches in the area of The Woodlands Cemetery. In a patent, the original name given by the Lenape was Nanganesey. It was called Quarn Creek by the Swedish settlers, and was listed by Manson's Great Mill Fall (Monson?), Mill creek and Little Mill creek. The name of the creek comes from the fact it was used to power factories at Grays Ferry. This creek has given its name to a neighborhood in Philadelphia that it flows through, although the creek itself is all but invisible, under the streets, as described below. The creek bisects West Philadelphia, draining about 5,000 acres (20 km2).show more
