Fairgate Factory Demolished
Ruler Maker Site is Set for Residential Use
The former Fairgate Ruler Factory on Division Street in Nelsonville came tumbling down on Monday, Jan. 30, and, for most residents of the village, it was a welcome change. The 5,900-square-foot, unsightly blue structure, built in 1936, has been an eyesore in the community ever since the ruler company closed five years ago.
