History:
This 250,000 sq ft structure was built in 1904 by the Lonsdale Corporation.  Originally a cotton mill Lonsdale employed upwards of 1,500 employees.  The mill’s owners were responsible for building the local water systems, and one of the first hydroelectric plants (still in operation today!)
The Tupperware Corporation took ownership of the mill in the 30’s, and it has since been referred to as, “The Old Tupperware mill.”  A cafeteria, daycare center, even ball parks were built for employees and local residents.  There were giant silos and huge storage systems which were shipped via private on site railroad stop.
Blackstone Smithfield Corporation bought the mill from Tupperware in 1987.  The daycare center has become the boys and girls club, and over 250 acres of property have been converted to conservation land, protecting the pristine condition of the Blackstone Valley Heritage Corridor.  The new High Rocks association will once again have the opportunity to function as a trend setting example for community.
