Since the mid-19th century, these mill buildings have helped shape the town’s past.
The role of these mills – known in the heydays of the mid- to-late 1800’s as home to carriage makers, most notably the Walker Auto Body and the Spofford and Smart Factory – is well documented in Amesbury’s history. The mills formed the backbone of the town’s thriving industries driven by the Powow River and built a cooperative cadre of craftsmen and artists that is still alive and celebrated today. The buildings retain the lines of historic character and have earned the distinction of being nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
