The Post Office at Pascoag,
(Burrillville Township, Providence County) was established on October 5,
1847. The first Postmaster was David H. Lord. The Post Office is
currently in operation under Postmaster Susan L. Borges appointed
on September 7, 2002.
Pascoag is located off of Route 100 just
north of the Pascoag Reservoir. Pascoag is located in the township of
Burrillville which was incorporated in 1806. It is one of several Villages
located within the township which also includes the townships of Harrisville,
Oakland, Mapleville, Glendale, Mohegan, Wallum Lake, and Bridgeton. These
villages were originally established to support the early textile mills that
began to appear throughout Rhode Island during the early 1800s.
Originally Pascoag centered around a
sawmill constructed in the early 1700s. A textile mill was constructed during
the 1800s which continued in operation until shortly after World War II ended.
