Cotton Mills of East Florence
Friday, Aug. 12, 2011, Florence erected a new sign in East Florence telling the history of the Cotton Mills Those mills played such an important part in the Florence economy during the early part of the 20th century
The Cherry Mill stood abandoned for decades until its demolition several years ago. Before it was torn down, I often speculated what an interesting shopping mall could be created in the picturesque building. Many of the old New England towns have been rejuvenated by such use of old structures. However the demolition ended those thoughts.
