Vicksburg project mixes Kalamazoo native’s passions
Kalamazoo County native and entrepreneur Chris Moore made his fortune in Seattle after founding Concord Technologies, a firm that pioneered the “internet fax” concept. He’s also co-founder of Old Stove Brewing, an award-winning taphouse and craft brewery and restaurant located in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market.
He’s now turned his attention to the $80 million “Mill at Vicksburg,” a mixed-use development of the former Lee Paper Mill in Vicksburg, Mich., showcasing the history of the community. The project brings together Moore’s passion for historic preservation, craft brewing, music and connecting with the community where he grew up.
