The Souhegan River provided power for the first textile mills in the state of New Hampshire. The first woolen mill was established in 1801 followed by the first cotton mill in 1804. No informaton exists for this scanned negative of a mill which has a leak in the roof.

Ed Rogers of the New Ipswich Historical Society has identified this as "Brown's Mill" also known as "#5 Mill" , it was located along the Souhegan River between Bank Village and Highbridge
