Industries

Industries in early Mendham were made possible by abundant natural resources and demands for materials, goods, services and food for a thriving community and beyond. Sawmills made timber for buildings and wagons, iron ore was mined and forged, fulling and dyeing mills produced textiles, coal was produced for heating and for running water wheels and machinery, gristmills turned grain into flour, blacksmiths crafted iron for plows, tools, utensils and horseshoes, and coopers made casks and barrels.
