The Thamesford Mill is, sadly, playing this same tune and like so many before it, things don't look all that positive.
Demolition crews have already removed a chunk of the building - I'm guessing the storage sheds between the riverside mill itself and the silos behind it. I keep hoping against hope that they won't come back to finish the job, that someone will swoop in, buy the place and miraculously invest in a complete renovation.
Which would deeply sadden me. Because it'll be hard to imagine what this street corner would look and feel like without it, and what this crossroads agricultural town would feel like without its anchor. Something tells me we'll never learn.
Your turn: If a miracle actually happens, what would/could this place become?
How about a safe haven for homeless or a food bank..
Lofts? There was a couple old warehouses here in Salt Lake that are now upscale lofts.
How timely, Carmi! We just lost the fight to preserve the former Pan Am Worldport at JFK International Airport. But the good news is that the Hebald Zodiac Screen will be re-installed. Mr. Hebald is 96 years young and still works daily in his studio! This is our next project!
I have a dream of restoring an old building like that into a working artists loft/gallery were multiple artists have their studios and patrons can see and talk to the artists at work and they run a combined gallery of their works. I have found towns online that have become artistic havens with such a building as an anchor.
Condos and apartments, much like the mill that site right next to our left hip (building wise). It's possible, and doable. Hope it's done in your town!
