Omega Mill Site

-A A +A

Omega Pond, visible from Roger Williams Avenue north of Agawam Hunt, was the site of a long-ago-demolished cluster of stone mills (from c. 1801 and later) which marked the start of mechanized industry in the vicinity as the Omega Cotton Mill. Today a much remodeled four-family clapboard tenement (c. 1850) at 45 Roger Williams Avenue most conspicuously testifies to the fact, along with the nearby Nathaniel Daggett House (1708, later saltbox addition c. 1900), at number 74. Originally a three-bay house with brick end chimney, in its elongated version it became workers' housing to Phillips Electric.
