Notes
Survey number HAER ME-60-A
Building/structure dates: 1908 initial construction
Significance: This cotton storage building was built by the Bates Manufacturing Company to store large shipments of cotton required to supply the newly developed Jacquard Weaving Mill No. 6, constructed in 1892, and in anticipation of the completion of the 1912-1914 Mill No. 5 Weave Shed. This later mill specialized in cotton bedspreads and tablecloths, the signature product of Bates from the early 20th century until this day. Building No. 8 was an important and integral part of the Bates Manufacturing Company until the company was purchased by Bates Fabric Incorporated in 1976, at which point the mill was consolidated and cotton was replaced for the most part with stain resistant artificial materials.
