Significance: Shannock is notable in Rhode Island as a well preserved, small, nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century mill village which retains in large measure the structures and other manmade features - mills, housing, stores, public buildings, dams, and walls and fences - of its period of ascendancy. Shannock is locally significant for its more than two-centuries long history of milling and manufacturing activity. A whole greater than the sum of its parts, Shannock's architecture possesses local importance in that it typifies mid- and late-nineteenth-century country building in Rhode Island and preserves a wealth of information regarding Rhode Island's early milling and manufacturing history. Alterations to Shannock's buildings have been the result of changing social and economic conditions and reflect the history of the village. Shannock Village's importance is increased by the loss of similar elements of the town's and state's rural landscape to suburban development.
