Buildings like the Champlain Mill once served as the foundation of a Vermont economy that thrived on industry, creativity and ingenuity. Built in 1910 and powered by the Winooski River, the Champlain Mill was at the center of life in Winooski for over a century.
Mill workers came from all over the world and produced fine worsted wool used in coats and suits sold by the American Woolen Company until the Mill closed in 1954. Now we're seeing history repeat itself, as the Champlain Mill becomes home to a new generation of entrepreneurial innovators focusing on emerging technology, healthcare and the creative economy. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Champain Mill now offers the Burlington area with a wide variety of office, retail, and commercial space for rent.
The Champlain Mill is a proud member of the Winooski Falls –an award winning, smart growth, new urbanist redevelopment recognized nationally for its innovative approach to community development. Recently awarded the national Livable Communities Award, this walkable neighborhood on the banks of the beautiful Winooski River includes over 100 acres of preserved open space, a new riverwalk, and shops, eateries, and services for young and the young at heart.
