The Avondale Mill was built by Horace Capron in between 1845-1848. Later owned by George Wheeler and others, for many years it was known as Crabbs' Mill after owner Benjamin F. Crabbs. Over the years flour, corn, and lace embroidery were among the products manufactured there. Until its destruction in 1991 from a devastating fire it was the oldest mill in Prince George's County.
