Norman Industrial Laundry Corporation

Today, we found a delicious smelling factory I'd never been to before. This used to be some kind of industrial laundry company. Its close proximity to a bakery filled the air with the scent of brownies and such. I wish more places smelled this good!

"The site was originally owned and operated by McCabe and Powers who manufactured jeep and truck chassis during World War II. The property was purchased from McCabe and Powers by American Linen in the 1960s. American Linen operated the site as a commercial laundry until it was sold in the mid-1980s to Charlie Gallagher who maintained the site as a commercial laundry. The property was again sold in the late-1980s to the Norman Corporation, which continued to operate the site as a commercial laundry until it ceased most operations in the late 1990s". -MODNR
