Ever wonder what happened to all the great American gun factories?

This link was posted on another firearms forum I'm on. It shows what happened over the years to some of the firearms factories that were so prevalent in the New England region. Good read for firearms history buffs.

True of almost all of early New England factories, not just gun factories.

That is my blog, I have always been interested in guns and history and I thought this was a sad chapter, but one that should be told

Also Gringo is correct, New England is rife with old, industrial revolution relics....many are being saved and re-purposed and many more just sit in ruins..

Great blog, being from CT I knew about most of these but there are several I was unaware of. Very disturbing to live in a state so rich in history yet so liberal and with a failing economy with no vision. A state that could have embraced manufacturing and provided incentives to businesses to remain in CT. GE is now gone too.
