From his desk in the New York Mills Lumber Depot offices, Warren Thompson could still see part of the old building along Centennial Drive that used to house Homestead Building Supplies.


Until last week, that is.

The building, which was moved to NY Mills from Bluffton in the 1920s (Thompson estimates 1926 or 1927) and has been a consistent presence in NY Mills, was torn down on June 22 and 23.
