The new Haskell Silk Mill was constructed at a new site upriver in Westbrook in 1901-02. The brick mill was state of the art, run by electricity and had its own separate dye house. The old mill was on Bridge Street in downtown Westbrook.
The company drilled two new artesian wells to supply the vast amounts of water silk manufacturing requires.
