Before the Dust Settles: Photo Gallery of Gougler Buildings
Kent photographer Brad Bolton toured the old factory and headquarters just a few weeks before demolition work started
We first told you about demolition plans for the old C.L. Gougler Machine Co. factory and headquarters on Lake Street when we broke the news about some of the buildings' interior being donated to the old Kent hotel restoration.
We got to take a tour of the old factory and headquarters, and Kent photographer and dedicated Patch reader Brad Bolton spent hours documenting the building with his camera so there would be a record of one of Kent's largest, and most successful, manufacturing plants.
Bolton shared with Kent Patch his full photo gallery, so enjoy these 57 images as we take you on a virtual tour of the old factory and headquarters as demolition work is under way to bring these historic buildings down.
