The Eclipse Mill is full of wonderful original industrial materials, hardware, and finishings from its days as a textile mill.
The original maple hardwood floors were preserved and refinished in the renovation of the building. Look closely and you can read the history in the floors: Spots where machinery was bolted down, pathways where workers walked back and forth operating the machines, scars and dents from years of use… All of these details in the floor give the Eclipse Mill an incredible sense of deep human history.
The massive original brick wall of the factory is fully exposed in Loft 309. In contrast to some lofts where owners have painted over the historical finish, the brick wall of this loft looks just as it did before the factory was converted to live/work spaces.
The building has many of the original massive metal factory doors still in place in various locations.
The below doors are now the private entrance into Loft 200. Look closely on the left door and you can just make out the word CAFETERIA — which is what Loft 200 used to be.
A door into the basement level…
… and within the basement is this lovely pair of arched double doors (only one visible in photo).
Numerous other delightful industrial details are to be found in the building’s many stairwells, hallways, nooks and crannies…
