Byline: Susan Spencer The 16,000-pound waterwheel harnesses the power of the Blackstone River, and with a groan and shudder, sets in motion the clattering shafts, gears and leather belts that relentlessly drove production of machine tools in the 1810 Wilkinson Mill. Steps away, in the mill developed by immigrant Samuel Slater and entrepreneur Moses Brown in 1793, vintage textile machinery vividly portrays manufacturing that changed the face of American industry. Across the courtyard, the Sylvanus Brown House illustrates a millworker's life at home during the country's infancy.
