Gougler Smoke Stack Closer to Demolition

Crews keep chewing away at old factory, expose base of smoke stack

In a little less than a month a landmark that has loomed large over Kent's landscape for almost a century will disappear forever.

Demolition crews working at the former C.L. Gougler and Machine Co. on Lake Street have a target date of April 25 for demolishing the old factory's massive smoke stack.

The former factory, which dates to around 1920, has been under demolition since December.

It's just the photo.
