Box Factory

Date of Visit: January 6, 2013 This factory was built in 1921 as a paper mill and packaging producer for a major American snack maker, who used the facilities until 1984.  The factory is interesting because it's built along a canal and utilized hydroelectric power. There are still remnants of the original canal works along the outside, though I need to go back and get better photographs of them.  It was still used for printing up until fairly recently but it now stands empty.  It's in excellent condition and could be easily reused without much renovation.  As far as factories are concerned, it wasn't one of the more interesting ones I've explored since it lacked machinery, but it had some picturesque qualities as you can see.
