historical narrative

Owners: Robert Benedict and Peter LeSaffe
Developer: Roy Umanzio
These wood and brick buildings represent the past and the present. Now distinguished by suite numbers, the R.W. Electronics, Mill Stream Carriage House, Inc. and the Ballardvale Company were once the wool dry houses of the historic Ballardvale Mills, dating from 1836, and later known as Storehouses A, B & C. The Sunlight (building?) is recent construction (1989) that successfully relates to the older ones.
