Inscription.  On this site in 1812 Samuel Slater, the Father of the American Industrial Revolution, Founded the East Village Textile Mill.

In 1936 the Rockefeller Family bought the property and for 75 years operated Cranston Print Works which was an employer of generations of local workers in times of war and peace. At its peak CPW operated three shifts employing as many as 800 people dedicated to the bleaching, printing and finishing of quality fabric. CPW established itself as a world leader in its field.

In January 2012, Mr. Fred Rockefeller, Jr. President of CPW, signed the deed over to East Village Square, LLC who is committed to the history of the site, present and future.
Erected by Cranston Print Works Company.
