Border City Mill No. 2 is a historic cotton textile mill located at one Weaver Street in Fall River, Massachusetts. The mill was erected in 1873 out of red brick in the Italiante style. The company's first president was S. Angier Chace and George T. Hathaway was treasurer.[2]

During the financial crisis of 1879, the company was re-organized with John S. Brayton as president.

By 1888, the Border City Manufacturing Company contained three mills. The company was still operating in 1940.

Mill No. 2 was converted into residential apartments in the 1980s, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
