Hervey Pettee built a thread mill at this site in 1813. A spring freshet in 1831 washed out the dam and ruined the factory. A stone structure soon replaced it. Charles Freeman & Son later operated a wool scouring mill. The flood of Feb. 2, 1886 tore out the dam and portions of the mill later operated by Alexander Ross.

Lake View Park opened by the Ross family July 4, 1906. The Norfolk & Bristol Electric Railroad spur line to the ballroom was discontinued in 1919. Lakeview was a popular swimming area for many years, maintained by the West Foxborough Mother's Club
