The original Peace Dale Woolen Mill is now the heart of the Peace Dale Mill Complex, home of several manufacturing and retail businesses. Around the time when Esek worked there, the mill was producing serge for New York City police uniforms. It's said the color of the Saugatucket River (which powered the mill), would change with the dye lot.
