  24.  Richmond Mill Storehouse, Lawrence St., ca. 1850.
The Concord River was exploited for water power even 
before the textile mills were established in the 1820s. This 
rubblestone building was the storehouse for Richmond's 
paper and cotton batting mill.  Note that although the 
rubblestone is carefully laid in horizontal courses along the 
front of the building, the sides and rear are constructed of 
randomly laid stone.  Nearby, at 224, 228 and 310-326 
Lawrence St., are dwellings built to house some of the mill's 
employees.
 
 
 
 

  25.  44-48 Elm Street ca. 1900.
3 or 4 story frame structures with low-pitched gable or 
flat roofs replaced lower-density mill workers' dwellings 
in the late 19th century.
