But the island also has an industrial history. A railroad line ran across it at one point and Cluett, Peabody and Company built a textile mill with a bleaching plant on the Island in the early 20th Century. Some of those buildings remain and while some now are used as State Office of Parks and Recreation facilities others remain vacant and in poor states of repair.
Here are two photographs of old towers I made a week or two ago. It was early in the morning on a nice clear day with lots of contrast.
