Tour of Historic Chicopee Village and Left Nut Brewery
1 Learning Unit for AIA
We will tour the amazing and diverse community of buildings which Johnson and Johnson Industries built for the mill workers and their families, all within walking distance of the mill. They were constructed in the 1920’s over a two year period in innovative designs which changed how mill communities were designed and developed afterwards.
Originally the new village included a company store and market, a church, a community center, a gymnasium, parks with tennis courts, sidewalks, and 217 single family brick houses each with private yards, buried power lines, indoor plumbing for kitchens and bathrooms, fireplaces, screened windows, etc. Many of these remain today in generally good condition. Some homes still have descendants of the mill workers living in them. How cool is that!
Across the highway from the village stands the cutting edge architecture of the mill structures, onsite power plant, and the renovated administration building which houses the brewery.
