The site of the Rockland Mill Village is one of the earliest and longest-functioning mill seats on the Brandywine. Grist milling commenced c.1724 and was replaced by a fulling and cotton mill c.1735. Paper was the primary product of the mill beginning in 1849 and the mill produced rag paper, fine book paper and tissue paper. The mill supported a population of 200 at its peak in 1880. The village that formed around the mill contained two churches, a hotel, a post office and twenty-eight company-owned houses in addition to the buildings on the mill complex. Operations ceased in 1973 when the mill was sold and developed into condominiums.
