Corn Canning, Lovell, ca. 1890
Contributed by Lovell Historical Society
Lovell Corn Shop built in the early 1890s by James P. Baxter and Sons of Portland.
Lovell farmers grew corn for the shop and a number of residents got jobs inside -- and young and old rich and poor, "uppercrust" and lower crust -- flocked to the husking shed to husk corn at 4 and 5 cents a basket.
