     History
    The fire hydrants on site were cast in 1947, suggesting the original part of the building was erected around 1948. A large addition was presumeably built in 1978, which was the date incorrectly shown here as the date it opened. It is also possible the plan operated under a different name prior to 1978.

    This plant was a wool dying operation, and textile manufacturer.

    This plant was closed in 1992 after a fire destoyed a large portion of the manufacturing area. The fire occured in an area behind the drying line.

    On or around Feb. 2nd, 2007, another major fire gutted the large sealed room where the serviceable equipment was stored.
