Chris Jensen for NHPR

It’s been a little more than four years since the Groveton paper mill closed.

But in a calculated gamble that will cost about $700,000 some people have refused to give up on it.

They’re chasing the idea of a new and far different life for the Groveton facility and the North Country.
