Stillwater Mill Site

     In 2018-19 a housing development was built on the former Stillwater Mill site.  The Stillwater Mill burned in May of 1984, and the land had sat vacant.   The stone buildings depicted in these photos were part of the mill, and are the only sections to have survived.   At one time a railroad spur ran up to them, and portions of the bridge that carried the tracks across the Woonasquatucket River can still be seen.
