Red brick mill buildings built ca. 1894. Known as Bancroft Mill in 1906; Bancroft Paper Co. in 1912; Union Paper Mill in 1921. Reportedly was in operation until "the sixties." Bancroft was a factory village on the east branch of the Westfield River, now abandoned. Two "Ghost Town" websites erroneously state the Berkshire Mill closed in 1894.
