Memories Of the Hudson River Mill
The Museum is collecting personal stories and recollections of the Hudson River Mill by former workers and family members to post to the new MEMORIES page of the Museum’s website.
We are seeking all types of accounts of work at the Mill, the impact of work on family life at home, and the role that the EMBA and the Community Building played in the life of Mill workers, family members and the wider Corinth community.
Family members are encouraged to interview parents and grandparents if they lack access to the Museum website and to write down their recollections for submission.
We would also like to receive personal stories from individuals who were not employed in the Hudson River Mill but who had a parent or family member who worked there and have their own memories of the Mill they would like to share. Those who worked only during summer vacations, truck drivers who delivered pulp wood, or even vendors who did business at the Hudson River Mill are encouraged to submit their memories.
The Hudson River Mill was closed in 2002 and demolished in 2012. The Mill’s former office building at 17 Pine Street which will be the home of the Museum is virtually all the remains of the once sprawling paper factory that operated for over 133 years. Yet many of us who grew up in Corinth or lived there during the period when it was in operation retain valuable memories if the role that the Mill played in our lives. Please share yours.
You can fill out the form below to submit your story to the Museum.
While the form ask for contact information so that we might reach out to you for follow-up, none of that information will appear online with your memory.
We will list the memory as “anonymous,” your initials only, or your full name if you wish. PLEASE indicate your preference.
