The Beaver Woolen Mills
(Incorporated 1869)
On this site in 1870, in a three story build-
ing, 60 x 120 feet, the first Woolen Mills
in Southern Utah operated. Machinery was
brought here from New England by rail-
road and wagon. John Ashworth and others
schooled in England in the art of wool
manufacturing formed the corporation. For
many years this mill was the main factor
in the growth and prosperity of Beaver
and surrounding territory. It was destroyed
by fire in 1920.
