Redford A. Buyce was probably Bangor's most ambitious grower, buyer, packer, picker, and shipper of produce. His apple farm was two miles west of town across the road from the Riverwood Hills Golf Course. In 1913 he purchased the old Woolen Mill on the pond and had the building moved to his property located on the west side of the railroad tracks, just north of the depot. This became his packing house (picture above). He was one of the first packers in the state to individually wrap and pack peaches for market. In 1935 Mr. Buyce built a 12,000 bushel cold storage on the site of the old canning factory on Diamond Alley. A large packing house was added on to the storage in 1937. This building was eventually owned by John Emmert and rented to Michigan Slip. Today it is owned by Michigan Summer Blueberries, Inc. If you get our upcoming book you can see a complete picture of the Woolen Mill packing house.
