About the Shady Lea Blog

The Shady Lea Mill has been a part of the South County economy going back to the 1820’s. The first product made here was an early version of bluejeans, and later other cloth products were made here. By the late 1900’s it had become a staple factory and these days it’s an artists colony.

But this blog primarily covers the vast woodlands adjacent to the Mill and the Mattatuxet River hat cuts though the forest and made industry possible here in the first place.
