Reclaiming Connecticut's Historic Industrial Buildings

Scattered across Connecticut’s landscape are thousands of old mills and factories. Places like the Gardiner Hall Jr. Company in Willington and Whiting Mills in Winsted now stand as architectural relics from our rich, industrial past. 

This hour, we take an inventory of these buildings and learn about ongoing efforts to preserve and reuse them. Later, we also talk to the author of Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences, a photographic collection of deserted sites across the United States.
