Image of the Anthony Mill on the Pawtuxet River in Coventry, Rhode Island.
Built 1872-1874, the Anthony Mill in Coventry is one of the most architecturally elaborate mills in the state of Rhode Island. Anthony Mill's rubble-stone walls are clad in stucco with granite outer corners, granite foundation and window sills and brick window surrounds. Its massive front stair tower rises six stories and is capped with a polygonal belfry trimmed with alternating bands of red brick and granite and four tall round-arched openings.
This truly spectacular mill was once the show piece of the Coventry Company and contained 33,132 spindles and 736 looms used for manufacturing cotton during its heyday.
Currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
