More About Pawtucket

History

Pawtucket was a key player in the American Industrial Revolution because of its mills. Built in 1793 by Samuel Slater, Slater Mill is the first successful cotton­ spinning factory in America and still stands today. Since the early 1950's, Slater Mill has been used as a museum open to the public. Architectural landmarks dot the landscape, including the Pawtucket Public library, built in 1902 by the Boston firm of Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson, who later constructed the neogothic campus at West Point. Skyscraper designer Raymond Hood, who began his career with Cram, was a native of Pawtucket, a Brown University graduate, and leader of the design team for New York's Rockefeller Center. Art Deco structures have been beautifully preserved in Pawtucket as well, such as City Hall and Shea High School, both by local architect John F. O'Malley. The ultra-Deco Modern Diner, with its streamlined locomotive look, was originally located downtown, but today in a newer location continues to serve up tasty meals in its signature style.
