Dana Warp Mill, Westbrook, ca. 1895

Contributed by Walker Memorial Library


This photograph is of the Dana Warp Mill, on the island in the Presumpscot River, as it looked after it had been rebuilt after a fire in 1893. The fire destroyed a section of the building on Labor Day, 1893.

The business came into being after Woodbury K. Dana, purchased a small mill on Bridge Street, in 1866, and began manufacturing cotton warp. The business soon outgrew the original buildings and in 1879, Dana purchased a woolen mill on the island, built in 1876, from George Warren. Dana continued to expand the mill over the years.
