Goulding Village

Developed in the early 19th century, the mill village at the
juncture of Barre and Riley Switch Roads was the earliest
industrial center of the community. Built by Ignatius Goulding
and Samuel Damon, several large cotton and woolen mill
buildings employed many laborers throughout the early part of
the century. In the late 19th and early 20th century the Goulding
and Damon mills were adapted for the manufacturing of cane
seat chairs and a paint factory.
