(WOONSOCKET, R.I.) – The Museum of Work & Culture, a division of the Rhode Island Historical Society, is excited to present a free screening of Run of the Mill’s newest documentary on the Longley Building.


This captivating film, brought to life through a partnership between Run of the Mill and the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council, is a profound exploration of one of Woonsocket’s most magnificent architectural marvels. This fourth installment in the Run of the Mills documentary series peels back the layers of time to reveal the rich history and captivating stories nestled within the walls of the Longley Building. Erected in 1890 by Charles E. Longley, a titan of the clothing retail industry, this ornate office building stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of Woonsocket’s past.
