Industrial Park

Even the railroad track is well manicured. The sign on the roof is fairly new, since Gorham moved its New York showroom to 5th Ave. in 1905.

The 37 acre factory complex was closed in 1986. It was
designated a National Historic Site, and Providence acquired it in 1992 at a tax foreclosure sale. After trying for six years to find a developer, the buildings were demolished.
