DescriptionRear view, (facing south) of the Main Plant and Clock Tower. Terraced brick facade is not yet complete as there is a wooden structure at the left, perpendicular to the Main Plant. Large brick chimney stack to the right of the Clock Tower. Evidence of construction is apparent as there is a mound of earth and debris on the left foreground. Starting on April 20th, 2000 the buildings at the rear of the Main Plant were razed, and only the façade remained. The project took two years to re-build and the result was the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center which has integrated the older façade with the new.
