Chestnut Street Mill

Norwich, CT

This building opened in 1885 as Beer Bottling Works and was later occupied by the Norwich Paper Box Co.  It was in continuous operation through 1949.  It is literally within site of Norwich City Hall and like many other buildings of that era, it has become so deteriorated that it cannot be preserved.  The city has accepted bids for its demolition and hopes to develop this prime downtown real estate.

  1. This could have made for some great loft spaces, if only 'decay by neglect' hadn't been an option.
