EWT, 2010:

63) Raye\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s Mustard Mill Rte. 190, Washington Street. In 1903 John W. Raye established a mustard mill next to the less than five-year-old railroad tracks on Washington Street, near the railyard. John came from a family of sea captains, some of them schooner skippers to the Magdalene Islands. Sardine packing was a big business at this time and mustard became one of the most popular packs for the sardines. John Raye saw the opportunity for the mustard to be shipped in barrels by schooner and the railroad to other sardine-packing communities. The mill is the last mustard mill using granite grindstones in business today.
