Eastern Manufacturing Co., Brewer, 1921

Contributed by City of Brewer


View of the Eastern Manufacturing Company in 1921.

The mill was started in 1889 when Fred Ayer bought the Palmer and Johnson sawmill in South Brewer.

A sulphite pulp mill was built to make use of the accumulation of slabs and edgings that were previously going to waste.

In the mid-1890s, a paper mill was built on the same site to make use of unsold pulp. That was the beginning of the Eastern Manufacturing Company.
