                                                        CUPOLAS REFLECT REGION’S SOCIAL HISTORY
             BY THOMAS MATTSON

  NORTHBRIDGE — One of the pleasant
things about New England is the prolifera-
tion of old mill bell towers.
  In a way, they stand time still. They speak
of a static equilibrium uncommon to the
modern world.
  Unlike the purely functional lines of fac-
tories that dot the Midwest, many of the
mills of New England are old enough to
have been rooted in a social order in which
architectural aesthetics was considered an
important statement of values.
  There were practical considerations, too:
Such as signaling the start of the workday,
lunch break, and the end of the workday.
Before watches were widely used, bells sig-
naled the hour and even the quarter hour,
as some college bells still do today.
  The cupola atop the Cotton Mill
Apartments, built in 1845 as the
Whitinsville Cotton Mill, is similar to the
tower      on   Independence        Hall   in
Philadelphia, except that the Liberty Bell
housing has another elongated layer on top
of the crown with which the Cotton Mill
tower may be compared.
  The bell tower on the Linwood Mill is
extremely elaborate, both outside and in.
When architects of the new Northbridge
High School were directed to the Linwood
Mill as an example of a building with a
tower worth emulating, they threw up their
arms, calling it too involved to copy.
  The Chinese-pagoda look of the bell
tower on the section of Whitin Machine
Works built in 1847 may have derived from
oriental influences on the Whitins, who
were avid art collectors as well as practi-
tioners of enthusiastic tree acquisitions
from round the world. However, much of
the family’s appreciation for things artistic
took hold only after they had secured their
place atop the world of textile machinery
production.
  The Crown & Eagle Mills in North
Uxbridge, part of the Rogerson Village
founded before 1820, had an outstanding
example of the same kind of tower that
graces the Old Brick Mill in Northbridge,
but the orange-painted hemisphere was lost
in a fire.
  Old Sturbridge Village several decades
ago was given the bell that formerly rang
from the tower of the Old Brick Mill.                                                                                                                                                           Thomas Mattson photos
