To the right are the Hill and Bates Mills, which were built about the same time as the Shaker Great Mill (1853) at Sabbathday Lake.

Unlike the Shaker Great Mill, which produced a variety of goods, these Lewiston mills specialized in the manufacture of textiles. Much of the production of the Shaker Great Mill was sold in Lewiston.
