Notes
Survey number HAER MA-122
Significance: The Renfew Manufacturing Company Mill No. 2 of 1867-1868 et seq. is significant as an architecturally distinguished example of late nineteenth century Italianate style mill design. In addition, it possesses important historical associations with several of Adams' leading industrialists of the nineteenth century and was the main mill of the town's largest industry for several decades after its founding. A devastating fire in 1984 destroyed most of the more than 25 late-nineteenth-and twentieth-century buildings in the complex. Today, only the main Mill No. 2 and several ancillary buildings remain.
