Oliver Ballou was a grandson of Nathaniel Ballou. He was a carpenter and builder who did work for Samuel Slater, who, with his textile mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, brought the Industrial Revolution to America. In 1814 Oliver and his son, Dexter Ballou, both Universalists, built their own cotton mill in Cumberland. They moved the business to Woonsocket Falls, Rhode Island in 1817. Overcoming losses due to an 1829 mill fire, Dexter expanded the firm into one of the largest in Woonsocket.
