Rockland, Delaware was one of the longest functioning mill towns on the Brandywine River. Rockland was especially known for its papermaking mills. Owners changed several times and the last of the mills closed in 1973. The houses in these photographs were built for workers in the mills in Rockland, Delaware and were torn down in 1995 for new townhouses. They were photographed by Robert A. Howard (1943-2012), former curator at the Hagley Museum.
The collection includes color photographs and 35mm negatives of exteriors and interiors of abandoned houses in Rockland, Delaware dating from 1994.
