After sitting vacant for many years and in very poor condition, the old paper mill, sited on approximately 12 acres in downtown Pepperell, MA, has been torn down. Quite a few proposals have been set forth over the years to develop the site but today's economy has made it a difficult proposition. In hopes of making the site more desirable to investors, the extensive mill site has been reduced to a pile of rubble.
Overlooking the Nashua river and just below a dam on the other side of Main street, the first paper mill was established around 1834 and the Pepperell Paper Company was the final successor to a series of companies that have operated the mills until it closed in 2002.
In the past, plans have been set forth to create a village with a mixed used of commercial and residential buildings. Town officials are commited to economic re-development of the site.
