Description


This is the second Images of America book showcasing the rich history of the town of Burrillville. Incorporated in 1806, the town grew in prosperity because of the many woolen mills that sprang up along its rivers and streams. This photographic history tells the story of how Burrillville's citizens lived and worked. One of the town's most prominent mill owners in the 20th century was Austin T. Levy, who purchased the mill in Harrisville. This generous man gave back to the community and created better living and working conditions for his workers in extraordinary ways. Spring Lake is featured, with fascinating photographs showing the lake as a popular summer destination. Other topics covered within include floods, blizzards, hurricanes, parades, farms, and older forms of transportation.
