Description 

Built in 1910, this building was the last granite mill constructed in Fall River. It signifies the refinement of mill building design in its extreme width and large window area. The Charlton Mill, built in 1910, was the last granite mill to be erected in Fall River. The mill plan, by William T. Henry, engineer, measures 154 ft. by 3274 ft. It presents a marked contrast to earlier mills by its extreme width and increased window areas. Early plans included a second spinning mill to be located to the west of the present buildings. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
