Paper Mill Run is a small tributary of Wissahickon Creek in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. For most of its length the present-day stream flows under Lincoln Drive. The stream first sees daylight near Johnson Street. During the 18th century the stream possessed a small community of thriving mills, and dams were built along the creek to power the mills. William Rittenhouse, grandfather of the astronomer David Rittenhouse, built the first paper mill in America along Paper Mill Run in the late 1600s. This location was then known as Rittenhousetown. Wissahickon Creek is a stream in southeastern Pennsylvania. ...
