The coronavirus has shut the world down. The closure of the commercial places that we might have frequented this weekend have brought us closer to the natural, free things of the world around us. We got outside for some family time together as we took a walk along the Blackstone River/Canal. At the end of the trail was the Stanley Woolen mill.
I always find places like this fascinating, appreciating the history of what was. Imagine the hustle and bustle of local mill workers that took place at this location during the turn of the century in the late 1800s, in its part of the Industrial Revolution of the Blackstone Valley. In its lifetime, the mill manufactured clothing and during war time manufactured military uniforms. The mill closed in the early 1980s.
