Star turn for Tremont Nail?

Feb 25, 2021

After decades of producing steel cut nails followed by years of disuse, the Tremont Nail Factory might soon have a new role to play in town — that of a film set.

A movie-making company out of Boston and the HGTV show “Save This House” and have both requested to use the Tremont Nail Factory site as filming locations, Director of Planning Ken Buckland said during the Feb. 25 Wareham Redevelopment Authority meeting.

Town Administrator Derek Sullivan said the town was still working on legal considerations related to the projects before granting permission. Sullivan and the other members of the Redevelopment Authority seemed receptive to the idea of allowing Tremont to appear in the TV and movie projects.

It did not appear as if allowing filming at the town-owned property would conflict with other plans for the site, including leasing the steel building to Aspen Blue for the purposes of manufacturing cannabis products.
