Festival of Historic Houses Preview: Monohasset Mill
On Thursday, May 30, with Rick Greenwood, Deputy Director, Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission will delve into the fascinating history and redevelopment of Monohasset Mill. Built in 1866, the building first produced fancy cassimeres while operated by Paine & Sackett. Various companies occupied the building during the 20th century, and by the early 2000s, local artists were using the large open spaces as live-work lofts. This use spurred a massive rehabilitation project converting the Mill into multiple condominium units for local artists.
