The building was constructed by Oliver Chace in 1840 as part of the adjacent Chace Thread Mill. When it was built, the mill and other buildings were located in what was then part of Tiverton, Rhode Island. It wasn't until 1862 that the State Line was relocated and the site became part of Fall River, Massachusetts. In 1867, the mills were sold and renamed the Mount Hope Mills, which operated until 1878. In 1880, the site was purchased by a group led by Crawford E. Lindsey, and renamed the Conanicut Mills for the production of fine cotton goods. The company later added a small brick weave shed nearby. The mills closed in 1926.
