Greg Paxton, who is retiring as the executive director of Maine Preservation, highlighted the Mayo Mill in in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. The mill site has an industrial history dating to 1822, although the oldest surviving element of it, a foundation, dates to the 1844 mill built by James Mayo and several partners. Over the next century it went through a number of ownership changes, and the complex grew to include all of the surviving buildings by 1941. During this time the mill was one of the major employers in the region, producing woolen cloth which was carried by cart - and later truck - to the nearest railroad depot. In 2015, it was rehabilitated and transformed into a mixed-use complex with residential space, offices, a boutique inn and a café. “Buildings, to be preserved, have to be used. So whether that’s your own house or a mill building or an abandoned school, it’s often a question of finding contemporary uses while bringing along as much of the well-built historic fabric as possible.”” Paxton said to a reporter with Down East Magazine. The Maine Historic Preservation Commission and other SHPOs work with organization like Preservation Maine and communities on adaptive reuse projects.
