William Skinner Silk Mill
- William Skinner Silk Mill
Image of the William Skinner Silk Mill. Formally located at Appleton Street and the First Level Canal this building sat at the current site of Heritage State Park in Holyoke, Massachusetts. The William Skinner Silk Mill was well known for its silk and satin production. This image shows a clear view of the U-shaped Skinner complex. While the architecture is for the most part plain, examples of denticulated corbels can clearly be seen on the cornice of the tower containing one of the main staircases of the factory. Before plans to refurbish this building were completed, the Skinner factory burned to the ground in 1980.
