About Slater Mill Historic Site

There are three constants in the history of Rhode Island: our waterways sustain us, our immigrant population enriches us and our ingenuity creates new opportunities for us. This was true in 1793, when Samuel Slater, an immigrant, built the first successful water powered, cotton spinning mill in North America on the banks of the Blackstone River at Pawtucket village, with the talents of local artisans and the entrepreneurial verve of Moses Brown. It continues to be true today. This is celebrated at Slater Mill, a National Historic Landmark and one of the most visited sites in Rhode Island with 30,000 visitors per year, 80 years of preservation experience and long-term partnerships with major universities, public school systems, cultural heritage organizations, tourism agencies, museums, guilds, artists, the business community and many others.
