https://www.facebook.com/RhodeIslandRuins/posts/580593748744250Tunk Hill Road at intersection of 102/Plainfield. Awesome mill ruins ... Not positive, but I believe this is part of the "lost" Rockland village. Here, you can see the use of large pipes to transport water from the river to the mill. There are above ground and below ground sections. One of the better examples of using pipes as a headrace. Another great example is on nearby Ponaganset Road.42001.23125

https://www.facebook.com/RhodeIslandRuins/posts/550024308467861Mercer Lookout - Wolf Hill - Smithfield - Courtesy of Town of Smithfield ... "This property was acquired in 1997 through a bequest by the late Hester Hastings who wanted it named for her relatives, the Mercers. Consisting of 24 acres, the high, rugged land was used for years as a summer camp by members of a Providence Boy Scout troop. However, after the Scouts’ cabin burned, probably in the 1940’s, the property was virtually forgotten for decades and the grand view became obscured by growing trees. Since the town took over the land, the vista has been reclaimed and it is once more possible to stand at this spot and enjoy the long views over Providence. On clear days, you can see far beyond the city, down Narragansett Bay as far as the Mount Hope Bridge."41947.601030093

https://www.facebook.com/RhodeIslandRuins/posts/521674014636224Okay ... here's another round of identifying this structure ... so far, the suggestions have been a short-range firing range and a NIKE missile site. Of the two, I would lean towards the firing range. For today's pictures, it looks more like a camp of sorts. There are two ovens that indicate food was served. Other than that, I did not see any other really good evidence to identify the site. Of interest, is iron-grates surrounding the "porch" area. Also, a couple of doors seems to be steel. (might support the pistol range).41889.609780093
