Chase Mill

Posted by

Twenty-six steps latter I am standing in front of Burlington’s Chase Mill, constructed in 1891, and significantly for photographers and fans of child labor, visited by Lewis Hine in 1909. A number of mills rested on both sides of the Winooski River from about 1789 onward, manufacturing lumber, plaster, paper, ship blocks, linseed oil and textiles. Most of these proved short lived, succumbing to floods on the river or an alarming number of fires. Water power was supplied by a natural falls, eventually supplemented by a pair of dams until these were taken out in the great flood of 1927, still legendary in Vermont, while the child labor was supplied mostly from Ireland and Francophone Canada.
