If there are LEGOs, they will build


Mike Ripley of Wayland doesn't believe that LEGOs are just for kids. In fact, he is part of a larger group, the New England LEGO Users Group, which builds large-scale LEGO projects, such as a replica of the Zakim Bridge.

They are now working on the LEGO Millyard Project, a reproduction of Manchester's Amoskeag millyard during its heyday around 1915. The ambitious LEGO project occupies more than 2,000 square feet.

"Building something this big Ė thatís something you canít do in your basement," said Ripley. He and the group were featured in the Nashua Telegraph recently.
