Originally constructed in 1923 on the site of an old planing mill for the lumber industry, the building at 266 S. Champlain was used as a bakery for the National Biscuit Company, aka Nabisco. It has seen many uses, though we hope its latest as a creative studio center and gallery is here to stay. Now we just need a name! Come by on First Friday to see a selection of works by the new tenants, lend your creative branding ideas, and check out the few remaining studio rentals for yourself!
