Part Fifty-Seven ~ What Else Was There (at the Upper Mills)

June 19, 2017

Last week we took a look at the west end of the  Mill Pond and saw the International Buckle Factory in its glory days before the fire that destroyed it in 1909.  Back in the early 1900s, the Upper Mills was the location of the Buckle Factory, The Electric Light and Milling Company, and of course, Mount-View Hospital.  This week we’ll take a look at three more photos of the Upper Mills.
