Notes
Survey number HAER NY-5
Building/structure dates: 1871 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1932 subsequent work
National Register Number: 78003151
Significance: Known locally as the Mastodon Mill, the Harmony Mill No. 3 is exceptionally interesting for its decorative architectural treatment, uncommonly elaborate for an industrial structure. Although the building is nearly 1100 feet long, its finely articulated facade, mansard roof, and central tower make it a well-scaled element of the Harmony Mills complex, which includes mill buildings, power canals, workers' houses, and commercial structures. Harmony is one of the finest examples of a large-scale textile mill complex outside of New England, and it has played an important role in the economic development of Cohoes.
