We are located in a beautiful historic building at 4 Water Street in Chester.
The building was built in 1909, and first housed Leet Brothers Poultry Feeds, and some years later the Princess Theatre was located on the second floor. Before WWII, the building was home to a pill factory and hair dye manufacturer. When the theatre closed, the 2nd floor was used for basketball. After that period, there was a service station and garage, as well as One of a Kind Antiques. Gregg Cook bought the building in 1979, gutted and renovated it and added the frame addition on the rear.
The Connecticut River Artisans Co-op was established in 1980 and is the oldest, continuously operating cooperative in Connecticut.
