Yarmouth: Leader in Soda Pulp

View of Royal River, Forest Paper Co., Yarmouth, ca. 1900
A new Maine Memory Network online exhibit, created by the Yarmouth Historical Society, tells the story of the Forest Paper Co., which was known around the world for its high quality soda pulp and the paper it produced.
Between 1874 and 1923 Forest Paper Co. was recognized for its technical innovation and employed hundreds of Yarmouth residents. Key to the operation was the power provided by the Royal River. Visit the exhibit to read more.
Special congratulations to Yarmouth Historical Society, which will break ground this week on a major project that will convert a former water district building on the Royal River into a new museum facility.
