The original house was built by William Sprague in 1790 and remained the family homestead for four generations.  At first, farming was their primary interest.  However, in 1808 after machinery for spinning cotton was invented, the Sprague converted a small grist mill on the nearby Pocasset River into one of the first cotton mills in New England.  This was the beginning of the “Sprague Empire” which later spread throughout the Pawtuxet River valley. (This excerpt taken from the Governor Sprague Mansion website)
