New Bedford, Mass. • The Massachusetts mill where billionaire investor Warren Buffett first made his mark is being torn down.
Roland Letendre, who's owned the Berkshire Hathaway mill in New Bedford for years, started demolishing the structure on Monday after years of trying to sell it.
Letendre tells The Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/1dsrasi ) the mill had been on the market with an asking price of $500,000, but it needs about $1 million in repairs. He plans to sell the land.
