|The old Goffe Mill (before restoration) during construction of the supermarket|
This photo was taken in 2014 from the old Macy's parking lot (Macy's is now gone, too)
|It will be nice to sit out on this patio and view the Goffe Mill|
when there is no more snow!
|Our tour guide explained to us that the tables and chairs in the restaurant|
were salvaged from the old Wayfarer Inn that stood on this spot
|A view of the Goffe Mill and the back side of the new Whole Foods Supermarket|
|This reclaimed wood was taken from the Wayfarer Inn, and the brick oven is surrounded|
with riverstone to honor the brook and mill chase behind the supermarket
|More reclaimed wood from the Wayfarer trims the ceilings and cases in the fish and meat department|
