The Mill History...
The Benjamin Chase Mill, famous for its high precision woodworking capabilities and was the world’s largest manufacturer of wooden nursery labels and a leading supplier of garden staples and tongue depressors. After a fire destroyed the original building in 1912, the new mill was rebuilt with fireproof bricks. The new mill as built over Beaver Brook and took advantage of the flowing waters to produce the power needed to operate the plant. The restoration has preserved the canal that steers the brook waters under the building. Many of the 36 unique floor plans provide spectacular brook views and sounds of the rushing waters warmly greet residents and guests.
About Beaver Brook...
Beaver Brook flowing through Chase Mill - Some units at Benjamin Chase Mill actually site on the edge while others offer stunning views. Beaver Brook which can at times be a low flowing brook and other times be a raging river based on rain and other seasonal flow from Beaver Lake.
Beaver Brook is a 30.7-mile-long (49.4 km) river located in New Hampshire and Massachusetts in the United States. It is a tributary of the Merrimack River, part of the Gulf of Maine watershed. Beaver Brook rises in Chester, New Hampshire, and flows south into Derry, passing through Harantis Lake, Adams Pond, and Beaver Lake. Continuing south, the brook forms the boundary between Londonderry and Windham, then flows through Pelham. The brook crosses the state line into Dracut, Massachusetts, and reaches the Merrimack River in the city of Lowell. Most of the brook's course is through gently hilly terrain that is rapidly being converted into suburban land use.
