The American Locomotive Works Complex once produce steam locomotives that were (and still are) used all over the country. The buildings were vacant for several years after the company cease to exist. In recent years the complex has been revitalized. There is also a publicly accessed walking path from Eagle Street to the parking area along Hemlock Street that follows the shore of the Woonasquatucket River along side the old factory buildings. The walk out and back is just about three quarters of a mile. Public parking is available at the end of the parking lot accessible from 10 Eagle Street (US Rubber Lofts).
