Qualifications

Interested in living in the Eclipse Mill?

The Eclipse Mill is an artists’ community consisting of forty artist studio lofts located in a district zoned industrial by the City of North Adams, Massachusetts. While the primary use of the lofts is for active engagement in artistic endeavors, the City allows accessory residential use, and each loft is livable, with its own amenities. Residents share in the use of common spaces, including the Eclipse Mill Gallery on the first floor, which hosts numerous exhibitions each year, and smaller, informal alcove gallery spaces on each floor.
