Extension of Mill for Boston Manufacturing Co
- Waltham, MA
- Construction: Jun 1902
- Architect & Engineer: Lockwood, Greene & Co (Boston)
- Building/FBG work may be standing
According to a letter from the architects, this was “extensions and improvements to a large mill that had to be kept in continuous operation while [FBG's] work was going on.”
Boston Manufacturing Co was a major employer in Waltham and Massachusetts, being one of the first to hire farm girls and house them in company dormitories.
Many of the buildings at 144-160 Moody Street still exist, but it is not possible to tell which building might have been the subject of FBG work or whether it remains standing.
