"The Verso Paper Mill in Bucksport, Maine opened in 1930 as the Maine Seaboard Paper Co. It permanently closed in December 2014." source

The mill closed due to declining demand for paper in this digital age and what has been argued as unfair foreign competition.

After operating for 84 years the remaining 570 workers were laid off in December 2014 when it was shut down.

It is now set for demolition.
