The pop-up cheese store that Plymouth Artisan Cheese Company opened at the Bridgewater Mill over the holidays is a small sign of big things to come for the historic mill complex.
Jesse and Sarit Warner purchased a 75-percent share of the mill site from Jireh Billings and Adriana Curutchet in March. The remainder of the complex is owned by Charles Shackleton, whose furniture and pottery production facilities occupy about 25 percent of the property.
