Oliver Chace's Thread Mill

Oliver Chace's Thread Mill is an historic mill building at 505 Bay Street in Fall River, Massachusetts. It is the remains of a much larger complex.

The building was constructed by Oliver Chace in 1840 as part of the adjacent Chace Thread Mill. When it was built, the mill and other buildings were located in what was then part of Tiverton, Rhode Island. It wasn't until 1862 that the State Line was relocated and the site became part of Fall River, Massachusetts. By then ownership of the mills had been transferred, and it was renamed the Connanicut Mills.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Famous quotes containing the words mill and/or thread:

    The only power deserving the name is that of masses, and of governments while they make themselves the organ of the tendencies and instincts of masses.
    —John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)

    I often wish for the end of the wretched remnant of my life; and that wish is a rational one; but then the innate principle of self-preservation, wisely implanted in our natures, for obvious purposes, opposes that wish, and makes us endeavour to spin out our thread as long as we can, however decayed and rotten it may be.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
