Summary

Part of New England Textile Mill Survey, 1967-68, sponsored by HABS, Smithsonian, and Merrimack Valley Textile Museum
Significance: Built in 1833, the Woonsocket Company's No. 2 Mill is an unusually fine early cotton textile mill, architecturally distinguished in its handsome proportions and Greek Revival detailing. It retains several rare features, such as the wheelpit and original waterways. The building is somewhat atypical in its construction, having wood joist floor construction rather than slow-burning timber. With the third and fourth floors still producing textiles, it ranks as one of the oldest textile mills in operation in Rhode Island.
