Located at approximately 58 High Street in Ashaway, I discovered the location of Williams Rogers Wells’ mill. I did a post about it a while back. Here is the link to it: http://wellsgenealogy.wordpress.com/2011/01/06/jan-6-2010/
Here is what the mill used to look like:
And here is the site today: I suspect the above photos were taken from about 20 feet or so into the paved area in front of me in the photo below.
While out driving around Hopkinton/Westerly with my friend I spotted the old burned out mill in the photos below. The photos were taken in Ashaway/Hopkinton from the corner of Laurel Street and Maxson Street looking across the river. The mill was on the other side of the river putting it in Westerly right as Potter Hill Road goes over the bridge. Does anyone know what mill this was. I would have loved to have investigated it further but the padlocked fence kept me out with the limited amount of time I had.
