Ripe for preservation

[click image to enlarge]


The Souther Tide Mill, built in the early 1800s, may not survive another New England winter without an infusion of preservation funds. It would be sad to lose this slice of Quincy's coastal history. From what I've read, there are very few colonial tide mills in existence.

Love this picture! And your title is perfect. I do hope they get the funds to restore it. I'd like to see the "after" photo already.

That's a wonderful photo, and a great building. It would be a shame to see that one go.
