From Andover AnswersAmerican Woolen Company Shawsheen Mills
York and Haverhill Streets
The American Woolen Company Mills, built as part of the Shawsheen planned community of William Wood, were completed in 1920. A power plant on the Shawsheen River provided electricity for the mill. In the 1950's the mill buildings were sold to a number of smaller businesses. The mills had functioned until that time.
The current Balmoral Condominiums at 16 Balmoral Street were originially built by Wood in 1920 to served as the executive offices for his company, the American Woolen Mills. The building is in the neoclassical style.
