So strange to see this. I worked in that building during high school in 1966-67 at Cabot Corporation. Loved working there.

That building was ugly as hell, but why did they demo it?

I assume because it wasn't historical, that they could demo it without any SHPO permitting or community opposition. Given that, it was a good spot to put up a bigger, newer building.
