Webb Mill
Walter Baker Chocolate Mills
Click image for more information
 The 1882 Webb Mill at 1 Eliot Street, Milton, at the corner of Adams Street is on the south bank of the river near the dam. Designed by Bradlee, Winslow and Wetherell in the Romanesque Revival style, the four and five-story, flat roofed Webb Mill is characterized by its broad entrance arches, its rough-faced brownstone bevel on its southeast corner, and the moulded extrados over round-headed top story window and entry arches. A small single-story office is attached to the north side, and behind the building is part of an earlier brick mill which probably dates from the mid-nineteenth century.
