The American Woolen Company Foxcroft Mill, located on the west side of the Piscataquis River in downtown Dover-Foxcroft, Maine, is comprised of seven buildings and three structures that represent several types, styles, and methods of construction used for mill buildings in Maine between the 1840’s and 1940. They include an exceptionally well preserved wood-framed mill building, built in 1883, and one of Maine’s earliest reinforced concrete mill buildings, built in 1908. Originally called the Mayo & Son Mill, the complex achieved its full developed state with the construction of the shipping building under the ownership of the American Woolen Company in 1941.
