Schwamb Mill, 17 Mill Lane, Arlington, Middlesex County, MA
Significance: This example of a 19th-century woodworking mill includes operational equipment and evidence for four power systems. Circular and elliptical picture frames are manufactured here as they have been since the Schwamb brothers bought the mill in 1864. Of special interest are five lathes on which elliptical frames are turned.
