A peek at the past. The Paint Factory

This is the old paint factory in Gloucester. After closing in 1980, the Paint Factory in Gloucester will be renovated and become an oceanographic research center operated by Ocean Alliance. This building dates back to the Civil War era.

What a great old building Steve. Are you able to see what it's like inside or is it off limits?

Yes Joan, we are excited that this building will be given a overhaul. It is guestimated to be a $10million project. If you watch the movie, The Perfect Storm, you will see this building.

Jenny, if you go to GoodMorning Gloucester, you can see a video that my buddy Joey shot of the interior.

Yup dAwN, this building has seen its share of storms.

Looks like an ideal spot for an oceanic research building. The color of the water in this shot is beautiful!

So will the outside remain the same? At least history will be preserved. Gotta check out that video!

Thanks for that link Steve. What a fabulous building. It would be great if they could keep the integrity of the inside as much as possible as well as the outside.

Great perspective Steve. I love the building and the colors.

I have always been intrigued by that building. You had a post a few months ago and the building was in the background.
IIRC, it says COPPER PAINT one one side?

ok, I've seen a lot of shots of the paint factory, but I've never seen a shot like this!
