Slater Mill, Pawtucket RI

I visited the Slater Mill site in Pawtucket RI on Saturday, with several members of my camera club. We arrived t 9AM for a private tour, as the museum opens to the public at 11 AM. Our first stop was the Sylvanus Brown House, which is furnished as an early 19th century artisan's house:





We also visited the Wilkinson Mill, which is a 19th century machine shop with a working water wheel. (Water was frozen during our visit so we could not see the water wheel in action)



And the Slater Mill which was the site of the first successful water powered cotton spinning factory in America:

We had a great time, and it was so nice to be back out shooting again!
