Liberty Lumber 

In the 1950s, the City of Baltimore operated a saw mill near the site of the future Liberty Reservoir.

 

Indian Grave

In 1952 while clearing the site for the new dam and reservoir they found this marker. The caption in the album reads:

“Taken February 8, 1952-showing old grave discovered near city saw mill while clearing land. Believed by some to be the grave of a Maryland Indian.”

A few questions about this – Is it? If so, what do the markings say? What happened to it? The one thing about coming across items like this is – now I have to try to find the old engineers/inspectors journals and see if they make mention of it or is it just a random photo some one took and placed in an album??
