Chenango Valley Mills is gone

Chenango Valley Mills is gone

I just found out from an article in the 2/12/09 'Chenango American' newspaper, “The Importance of Being Preserved” by Peg Ross, the town of Greene historian, that this great old mill building is no longer in Greene. Heritage Barns in Texas dismantled it, will restore it in Texas and then it will be re-erect it in Corvallis, Montana for Steve Neal, the new owner.
Myself, I’m upset that it is gone. It’s good that it’s being preserved, but I’m sad that it’s not preserved in Greene. We also lost a great old church in McDonough that I think the same Texas company dismantled and shipped somewhere else.
This is a picture I took of the mill in March 2006 from Water Street. The Chenango Valley Mill was at the end of Mill Street on the Chenango River for over 180 years (since 1938).

Hello, I am the new owner of the mill. I wanted to assure you that I found the mill already in Texas. I didn't want anyone to feel like I took something from them. I hoped to give the old building a second chance at a new life.
