Description

Central Falls Mill Complex in 1971. Now titled The Central Falls Mill Historic District, the complex includes a collection of six mill buildings that display pre- to post- Civil War construction examples and a stone dam that impounds the Blackstone River. The earliest mill building was built in 1825 and the latest was built in 1910, but all have experienced modifications.
