The Old Melrose Knitting Company Warehouse

I know very little about this warehouse but it is my favorite one in downtown. You may have passed it a thousand times before noticing it because the warehouse is tucked away on the right as you come into downtown on Dawson St. at Lane St. I bring it up because there has been some small amount of activity here recently. A brick wall has been built in front with two openings, wide enough for a single car. My first guess is that there will be a parking lot in front for possible offices in the building.

I took a picture of the warehouse almost a year ago. Below is that picture followed by a recent one showing the new additions. If anyone has any information about the warehouse, please share in the comments. A Sanborn map from 1903 (pdf) shows the warehouse and that the Melrose Knitting Company was here.
