The former Brown Street Furniture building has been dormant for nearly a decade. That could change. A potential buyer has come forward to revive the once-thriving manufacturing facility located a half-mile from the town center. Sara Dunn and Shane Morton have a purchase-and-sales agreement in place to acquire the 48,000-square-foot factory space, 17,000-square-foot warehouse and 12 acres of land. “We’re looking to renovate the building, bring it back, and bring more businesses into Whitefield,” said Dunn. Before closing on the sale, Dunn and Morton seek an abatement from the town on more than $120,000 in unpaid property, water and sewer taxes. The Select Board heard the abatement request on Monday and promised to review the matter. Dunn and Morton are uncertain if they would proceed without an abatement, due to risks associated with the property.
