Bourne Mill
Bourne Mill is an historic textile mill in Tiverton, Rhode Island. The various buildings in the cotton mill complex were completed from 1881 to 1951 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. The Bourne corporation had a unique profit sharing arrangement based upon Jonathan Bourne's experience in the whaling industry. The company treasurer, George A. Chace, designed the original mill building. Located just over the border from Fall River, Massachusetts it is generally grouped and referenced with the mills of that city. After lying dormant for decades, the Bourne Mill will experience a rebirth this fall. Located next to Cook’s Pond, the once thriving cotton mill will be transformed into 166 upscale rental units ranging in size from 660 to 1,340 square feet (124 m 2). Braintree-based developer E.A. Fish is restoring 10 buildings on the site with a mix of residential and commercial properties
