Margaret Morrisey of Jacob Edwards Library informed me that the Central Mills building of the 1800's can be linked to Manning Leonard and the Central Mills, who was associated with the company from 1844 untile 1864. To find out more, check out the Levi Chase Southbridge History article!

I also learned from the late Milt Freeman that the Southbridge Public Schools housed their 6th Grade in this building during the 1940's.
Does anyone remember this? If so, please contact Dick Whitney.
