Abstract or Summary
  • The Thomas Kay Woolen Mill operated between 1890 and 1962. The mill produced predominately woolen blankets and woolen fabrics for outerwear garments. Mission Mill Museum Association purchased the woolen mill after its closure in order to develop the property as a museum. The purpose of this study was to provide historic documentation of the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill woolen finishing processes and machinery which will be used to interpret a new exhibition of the mill's finishing departments. Business records of the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill which were found in the museum's archives, newspaper articles, extant mill machinery, old machinery manuals, and woolen process texts provided most of the documentation for this study. Generally, the finishing processes and finishing machinery used by the mill remained the same during its seventy years of operation. The proposed plan for the exhibition retains the extant wet finishing department and proposes suggestions for interpretation of the predominant finishing processes used in the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill.
