9780962852398: The Mill on the Roeliff Jansen Kill: Two Hundred Fifty Years of American Industrial History

Built as an iron forge in 1743 by New York State's prominent Livingston family, the Mill on the Roeliff Jansen Kill, located southeast of the City of Hudson in Columbia County, has survived almost 275 years of political and economic change. As a colonial iron forge, the Mill produced stoves, grates, carriage wheels, pots and kettles, then served the American Revolution by producing cannonballs and shot, and links for the first great chain across the Hudson River, installed to prevent British ships from sailing upriver. In the 19th century it began producing paper from straw and manila tissue, and then was modernized in the 20th century to produce specialty paper products for the Kimberly-Clark Corporation. Features 38 illustrations.
