Factory buildings in Albany and Rensselaer are among 28 properties nominated to the State and National Registers of Historic Places last week by the New York State Preservation Board. The former National Biscuit Co. (Nabisco) factory complex on N. Pearl Street in Albany dates from the late 19th century. It is slated to be the new home of Capital Repertory Theater. The William Barnett & Son Shoddy Mill in Rensselaer occupies about six acres of land along the Hudson River. It closed in 1976. Three other industrial buildings were also included on the latest list: the General Ice Cream Corp. (“Sealtest”) factory in Syracuse, the Miller Corsets factory in Canandaigua and the Utica Steam and Mohawk Valley Cotton Mill in Utica. Photos from Albany Times Union.
