A pair of abandoned textile buildings in west Georgia have been slated for demolition. A request for bids has been posted by the City of Bremen to tear down the dilapidated Hubbard Textile Mill and water tower off Hamilton Avenue near the intersection with US Highway 78 / Pacific Avenue. Bids for the project are due to the city by June 15.
A landmark of the partnership between the Sewell and Hubbard families, the company started in 1935 and closed in 2009. They made uniforms for the military for World War I and later only made slacks. Warren Sewell, Sr. was responsible for helping all of the clothing manufacturers in Bremen get started.
Future plans for the land are still in the early stages of development. However, once the City of Bremen determines how much of the land needs to be ceded back to the railroad, current plans call for a park to be built along with more parking for the downtown Bremen area.
Stay tuned to The City Menus for more information as it becomes available.
