Inscription.

The original Suffolk Mill buildings, constructed in 1831, were razed and rebuilt during the idle business years of the Civil War. Only the 1831 counting house survives. The company merged with the Tremont Mills across Suffolk Street in 1871, and new buildings were added as the company expanded in the late 19th century. The rebuilt Suffolk Mills remain, including seven Victor Water Turbines installed in the 1890's.
 
Erected by Lowell Heritage State Park and Lowell National Historical Park.
