Woolen Mill

The damming of Doan Brook just east of Lee Road provided power for the woolen mill in this image. The mill was once located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Lee Road and South Park Boulevard. Constructed in the 1850s, it produced wool which the Shakers turned into high-quality stockings, gloves, quilts, yarn, and other clothing items to wear and sell.
