In 1854 the Saco Water Power Company built the Pepperell building Mill #3, later known as Mill #2 or Lincoln Street Mill, as of the 1900s, to produce thread for the Pepperell weave sheds.
The mill ceased operation around 1970, when WestPoint Pepperell moved the entire Biddeford Cotton Division to mills in the South, and sold the Blanket Division land, buildings, and machinery, to Sunbeam Corporation who formed the Biddeford Textile Company.
Developer Tim Harrington, purchased the mill complex in 2015, began renovating the former textile Mill #2 into 181 apartments, a fitness club and restaurant.
