The other mill is in Hope. This mill was build in the 1830's. It was supposed to be turned into condo's until the economy slide.You can also read more about the challenge of renovations here.
I always wonder about the people that worked in the mills and how the conditions were there. Did they work 8 hours or were they 12 hour days? How did they see at night? And just how HOT did it get during the summer in the mill and the upper levels?
Do you have old mills near where you live?
