Quotations from the National Register nom form
The quotations from the National Register nom form that I cited in the article say:
"The Hallville Mill Historic District is significant as an intact representative small-scale 19th century manufacturing village containing a high concentration of contributing buildings and structures built as components of a company town based initially upon the Rhde Island system of nlanuficturing. During the period Of significance, the Hallville Mill became one of the Town of Preston's major employers and source of local tax revenue. It represents the shift in the town's economy to industrial production during the period of significance."
"Manufacturing activity has been undertaken at the site from before the Revolution when Robert Kennedy bought the property on Indimtown Brook and erected a fulling mill in 1752."
Hallville as it exists today is a historic mill village. --Orlady (talk) 22:06, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Nice sleuthing to find that, although I notice there is not much more in the newsletter than what you quote here. I also notice the newsletter identifies Hallville as being, first of all, a section of Preston, Connecticut, rather than being a village primarily. Upon seeing this note, i thot at first that you had requested and obtained the NRHP document in order to develop the article more. Oh well. Why not work together to obtain and share those documents, in order to develop these articles more properly? doncram (talk) 22:32, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
As I continue to point out, I don't actually want to devote my life to documenting the details of National Register historic districts in Connecticut. I am merely trying to help elucidate the discussions here. --Orlady (talk) 00:03, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
Section/neighborhood/village are all interchangeable terms in common usage. Locals really don't distinguish between them. --Polaron | Talk 00:01, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
[EC] As has been stated elsewhere, "section of town" is a widely used term in Connecticut and probably also in nearby states (notwithstanding User:Noroton's utterly unsourced assertion in Administrative divisions of Connecticut#Village, neighborhood, section of town that it is "phrasing particularly popular in Stamford, Connecticut") that encompasses, but is not limited to, the concepts of "neighborhood" and "village". In my experience of Connecticut, "section of town" is more widely used in urbanized towns than in more rural places like Preston, but in either type of area the use of the term "section of town" doesn't convey any profound meaning. Anyway, this article is about the historic district that is focused on the mill village of Hallville; it's not about the way people in Connecticut describe their neighborhoods. I don't the fact that the Preston Pipeline referred to Hallville as a section of town is encyclopedic information that needs to be in this article. --Orlady (talk) 00:03, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
