Columbia Falls Buildings  

StonykillColumbiaFalls (SKCF) Chatham is located on the site of four previous mills dating from the late 18th century when grist mills and later paper mills took advantage of the water power of the Stony Kill creek. Throughout the 20th century the mill underwent considerable expansion and was recognized as an important economic force in the region. The last mill, Columbia Box Board, an innovator in its time, closed in 1995. The present owner, in the spirit of innovation, envisioned the development of the property powered with renewable energy, as an exciting economic resource for the 21st century. He has transformed the Stony Kill building, which houses three of his businesses and two tenants, to be a model of energy efficiency. Rehabilitation has been an on going process on the Columbia Falls “mill”. It is partially occupied and one of the detached buildings is heated and cooled by solar thermal energy.
