    Chester, MA, during the late 30's to the 60's, was a small prospering rural community with several flourishing industries: a granite quarry, a stone shed for working the granite, an emery mill now the General Abrasive Treibacker Inc. and the Cortland Gringing Wheels Company, With the exception of the emery mill, which employs about a dozen workers,m these industries no long exist.

     Future Plans
    Nothing is planned and there's really not anything to rehab. The old brick building and chimney would be valuable for the bridk recycling only.
