Clocktower Place

Nashua, NH

This building was once the home to the Nashua Manufacturing Company, a textile manufacturing company that was founded in 1823. The company prospered throughout the 1800's and as it grew so did the city of Nashua, NH.  The company was acquired by Textron in 1945 and the mill here was closed in 1948.  Now a number of the buildings on this site have been converted into luxury apartments.  It's great to see these old buildings kept in good shape and re-purposed into other uses.  It's a shame more cities can't revive these mills like the city of Nashua has done here.  It's even great that the clock still works, and shows the correct time.

  1. It is a building with "good bones." Though I am glad to see abandoned factories re-used, it still saddens me that we have lost so much of our industrial base. Yes, it is an information age, but we still need places where people make things, and people who are not digital can earn a good living.
