Learn history of Biddeford mills

“Biddeford Rising: The Mills and the Men and Women Who Made Them,” will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 at the Biddeford Meetinghouse.

The story of the Biddeford mills is not just about manufacturing. It’s about ingenuity and the men and women who applied their skill and intelligence into cutting-edge products sold all over the world. They were imbued with the spirit that “anyone could do it” and they – generations of Biddeford forefathers and foremothers – showed generations over and over again what intelligence and hard work could do.

Mill veteran David Bishop will give participants a window into the mill history, mill technology and mill experience. The second half of the event will be devoted to first-accounts from mill veterans.

Desserts and refreshments provided. Free.
