History of the Maynard Mill


These photos were taken by George Yates after the Mill's Digital days:

I worked at Digital in Maynard mostly at the PKO3 mailroom from 1978 to the end of 1994. I worked at about 5 companies at the Mill from 1998 to 2011 when it was called Clock Tower Place. Around 2014 and 2015 the new owners came and changed the name to Mill&Main. The property manager said I could walk through and take pictures of the mostly empty buildings. I have about 150 videos and pictures walking around inside. I also have some pictures of when they took down a couple of the smaller buildings.
