Description

The original Leavitt Brothers clam plant was on Pine Point Road. This plant was where the railroad overpass, on Pine Point Road, was built. This image shows barrels and bushels of clams. It was a unique set of buildings in that it had a clam plant on the bottom, a canning operation (soldering the cans) on the top floor, and a barber shop at the front.

Although it burned, part of it survived and the front of it is a house which exists today.
