About Easthampton
Easthampton was originally settled as a farming village and grew to be prosperous due to both its location and the industriousness of the local population. Water power played a large part in the development of Easthampton, and by the the late 1800's numerous manufacturers were taking advantage of the power that came from the mill ponds and rivers. In the 1970's and 80's, many manufacturers moved to the southern states and overseas, and the once bustling mill buildings stood vacant.

However, Easthampton has once again been discovered and many of the industrial spaces now contain thriving businesses, artists, startups, restaurants, retail and even government agencies! Easthampton is now looking toward the future, with substantial and ongoing investment in the buildings, infrastructure and environment.

Rigging

Our current rigging structure consists of stainless steel eyebolts secured in the original, thick wooden beam structure of the building. We use two of these points, various sized rock climbing slings and stainless steel carabiners to create one riggable apparatus point. Each sling is covered with rubber tubing to resist wear from the beams. We fly away each apparatus with durable weight bearing rope and professional rock climbing carabiners. Our rigging is checked weekly to ensure the safety and durability of each point.


We are currently switching our rigging over to a more durable and longer lasting chain and shackle system. More information will be posted about this new system shortly.

Photographs of our facility will be posted shortly.
