    I haven't been in a factory in a long time. Thanks for the meetup! It has piqued my interest in working for a manufacturer maybe some time soon!

    Let's meet up in the Comfort Research parking lot on Richmond St and Elizabeth Ave. You will see large semi trucks backed into the building situated on the north side of Richmond St, east of the railroad tracks and just west of Elizabeth Ave. The entrance to the factory is about centered on the building.

      I have been told they no longer give plaster mine tours. They were stopped within the last 8 years or so. Jim
