YESTERYEAR: Lincoln Cotton Mill

admin

first_imgLocated at 1401 Park Street near the old Belt Railroad line, the Lincoln Cotton Mill was one of several that operated in Evansville after the Civil War and into the twentieth century. Founded in 1902 by Charles Brown (pictured here with his family), the company developed into one of the largest cotton mills in the Midwest, employing hundreds of workers until the early 1950s. Whirlpool and other industries later occupied the large warehouse, which was recently razed.FOOTNOTE: We want to thank Patricia Sides, Archivist of Willard Library for contributing this picture that shall increase people’s awareness and appreciation of Evansville’s rich history.
