Forest Paper Company Chimney Construction, Yarmouth, ca. 1900

Contributed by Yarmouth Historical Society

As Forest Paper Company's business increased, a need for faster production and larger quantities emerged. The mechanization of labor and the reliance upon inanimate sources of energy was certainly evident by this time. Inanimate energy in the form of water and coal shot F.P.C. ahead because of its location on Yarmouth's Royal River and increased the need for tall brick chimneys to be constructed like the one above. During the late nineteenth century, Yarmouth's meeting house steeple and Forest Paper Company's chimney's were seen from miles around, serving as navigational landmarks.
