Walking through this town is like stepping back in time, a little. Each little building has a plaque infront of it, with little snippets of some of it's history ...who lived there. It's like you can piece it all together and recreated the community in your head.
1903 * Market * Here the company sold meat and vegetables raised by local farmers. The building was remolded into a garage after the market moved into the store building in 1916. (M.S. Drew House in the background.)
The "Market" is now home to The Artful Ewe

I guess I missed the New York House .......
1863 * NEW YORK HOUSE * The house was built by the company in order to attract and retain the resident physicians who lived there over a long period of time. It likely served both as hospital and home to the town's resident physician until sometime prior to 1929, when the hospital was situated closer to the mill.
