Front Porch: Memento bricks may be available from Kimberly-Clark plant

Memento bricks
The walls are gone but much cleanup remains to be done after workers demolished the red-brick, 1930s digestor building at the Kimberly-Clark plant on the Everett waterfront over the weekend. On Sunday, huge mounds of debris covered the sides of the giant digestors that were used to cook wood chips into pulp.
People who are interested in getting bricks as mementos of the old building can leave their name at the guard shack at the entrance to the former mill. The demolition contractor will consider the requests.

During the closure, signs will lead drivers on a detour along South Machias and Richey roads. Access will be allowed to emergency vehicles and people who live in the area. The closure is expected to last from 7:30 Monday morning until 5 p.m. Feb. 1. For more information, call 425-388-6475 or go to and search for "road construction."
