  • Where was the Basket & Veneer factory located?

    While the "Industrial Supplement" doesn't give the factory's location, the 1906 City Directory indicates it was in Mill Town. Mill Town was an area near the river, sort of east and south of the River Campus. It held a collection of sawmills and factories: Cape City Soap Works, Indiana Lumber Co., La Crosse Wagon Stock Co., Leming Sawmill, McBride Stave Factory, and Standard Box and Veneer.

    Thanks for reading.
