"There is a great story to tell about this mill village that still has so many of its original buildings, and about how we have an opportunity to return all this into a vital village center. This short walk is appropriate for all ages and we’re looking forward to having Grafton families come out and join us and learn about the history of their community.”

Farnumsville is one of a chain of three historic mill villages situated along the Blackstone River in South Grafton. The August 2nd Ranger Walkabout will detail the influence of the Blackstone River and the adjacent Blackstone Canal on the century long evolution of this village from Peter Farnum's 1827 mill to a major place for the manufacture of cotton products.
