Contributed by Dixfield Historical Society


The Dixfield Lumber Company as it sits on the bank of Webb River, ca. 1900. Dixfield's iconic Sugarloaf Mountain is the backdrop. The Dixfield Lumber Company was founded by business partners Lou Fairbanks and Charles Towle and was one of several sawmills that operated up and down Webb River at this time. In 1911, Charlie Towle purchased and remodeled a small hardware store owned by Almon Stockbridge on lower Weld Street, thus founding Towle's Hardware and Lumber Company. The Dixfield Lumber Company supplied lumber to this store.
