The Lippitt Mill, individually listed on the National Register, is known to have been the oldest, continually operating, wooden textile mill in the country. Built in 1810, the three and a half–story timber–framed mill ceased cloth dying operations in 2011. The renovations include an adaptive reuse of the historic mill for 65 market rate & affordable housing units. Amenities will include a community/cafe space, business center & fitness center. State of Rhode Island Historic Tax Credits and Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives are being utilized to help fund the project.
