The Jones-Faulkner Mills mural is a new wall display by Steven Renaccio of MR Associates of Acton, based on a 1979 exhibit created by architectural historian Robert Nylander. Richly illustrated with maps, photos, and historic images, it chronicles the development of “Mill Corner”, the earliest village in Acton, and the heart of the town’s industries under the Jones and Faulkner families.
