Waterside Woolen Mill

Yesterday, I met up with some photographers in Waterbury, PA to photograph an old woolen mill that was built in 1806.  It was shut down in the 1960s, but has since been reopened with a smaller scale operation, weaving traditional Pennsylvania wool blankets.  The equipment that is still being used today has not been replaced in over 100 years.  The looms date back to the 1870s, and the other machines were manufactured in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  The water wheel that used to power the mill no longer exists, but you can still look at the empty space where water from the small river still rushes through and imagine how loud it had to have been in the mill so long ago when the wheel was there.  I took a ton of photos, but these were my favorites.  I hope you enjoy them!
