The Eclipse Mill live/work community consists of a wide range of artists and artisans, currently including painters, writers, potters, fiber artists, composers, educators, a bookseller, a conservator, a light designer, an art dealer and a publishing house. The building is much more than a renovated textile mill with studio space. It is a vital group of creative individuals working independently and collectively to make a live/work space that fits the needs of all. The condo association is self-governed, with various committees and a board to govern the day to day running of the building. Each floor has its own neighborhood culture, with dinners and coffees a frequent result. The first floor has a large shared gallery where exhibits and openings contribute to the artistic engagement of the region.
An 1800s brick mill building on the Hoosac River in view of Mount Greylock, the Eclipse Mill is situated in the Berkshires, a gorgeous corner of New England. Carefully restored, the lofts average 2,200 sq. ft., with 14′ ceilings and 10′ windows, hardwood floors, individual heating systems, and individual dry-basement storage units.
