Large campus of many buildings - one is over 200 years old whereas the rest were 1900s.

Usage of the site began with Paul Revere in 1801 when he started a mill on the site. His company left in 1902 and Plymouth Rubber took over the site in 1909 and left in 2007.

Campus has been demolished and is now a mixed-use site. The original Paul Revere mill building was preserved.

    Industrial use of the site dates back to 1801 when Paul Revere (yes, the patriot-riding Paul Revere) had his copper rolling and iron mill. Revere Copper Company left the site in 1902 and in 1909 Plymouth Rubber Company purchased the 40-acre site. In 2007 the site was closed.
