Glenark Mills is a true historical treasure, earning a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The original stone portion of the mill was built in 1865, which coincided with the end of the Civil War. The brick extension followed in 1885, a time when machinery and factories were flourishing in cities across the Eastern seaboard, including Woonsocket.
Glenark Oaks, a modern apartment complex added in 1990, offers comfortable and affordable living options steeped in history. In recognition of its exceptional renovations, Glenark Mills/Oaks was honored with the Vanguard Award by the National Affordable Housing Management Association in 2015, further cementing its status as a top-tier affordable housing option.
This community boasts grand and affordable living options with a rich history dating back to colonial times, which flourished during the Industrial Revolution. Today, this old mill town is undergoing a transformation to provide a unique living experience for its residents.
