Forster Mill demo begins Tuesday in Wilton


WILTON – The Forster Mill demolition in Wilton is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Town Manager Rhonda Irish said more than 400 windows have been removed in preparation for the demolition — due to the asbestos in the windows’ caulking.

Acquired by the town in 2015, the mill has manufactured automotive upholstery, wood products and plastic cutlery over its more than 100 years in operation.

EnviroVantage of Epping, New Hampshire, submitted the winning bid — $48,225 — for asbestos removal, and the winning bid — $372,689 — for building demolition bid.


The company has 90 days to complete the demolition.

    Yay! Any plans for what will be built there? A park for all ages would be nice.
