Watershed Dams and Tour Mills

The Pawtuxet River descends over 800 feet across about 20 miles to empty into Narragansett Bay at Pawtuxet Village in Cranston. The water power at 167 dams (black squares) powered many grist mills and sawmills, and dozens of textile mills large and small including the 15 mills on this tour (red dots).
