The Ware Knitters Machinery repair shop is based on an actual building in a textile mill complex in Ware, Massachusetts. This complex once contained 7 main mills and several other buildings. The actual structure is attached to a larger mill; in this case known as Mill No. 5 in the Ware Industries complex. The woolen mill to which our structure is attached shut down in 1982. The saw tooth roof and the stonework make this a very unique structure. The stonework pattern is also used on a large stone mill in this complex and on other mills in the Ware River Valley.
