Morgan Falls Pulp & Paper Co. /

LaHave Pulp Company Limited

The original name was The Morgan Falls Pulp and Paper Co.  The pulp mill was erected in June, 1893, by the Morgan Falls Pulp Co., composed of Hon. A. G. Jones and Sons, and Joseph S. Hughes, Esq., the latter being manager. Another account says that, Nathaniel Morgan built a new saw and grist mill at Morganís Falls.  Before this mill was built, people had to go to Kaulbachís Mill twenty miles away.  John Chelsey built a mill on the site of the one which was owned later by his grandson John Chesley.  Nathaniel Morgan was fond of visiting places away from home.  He was traveling towards Liverpool, and it is supposed he became bewildered and lost his way in a storm.  His dead body was found by Mr. Avard Wile, not far from where Aaron Hebb used to live. Twenty tons of pulp were manufactured per day, using up fourteen cords of wood in the operation. It was sold some time later to The Acadia Pulp & Paper Co.  It was managed by Mr. Joseph Feindel until 1904 when F. & A. F. Davidson bought the mill and changed the name to The LaHave Pulp Company Limited.  The mill was later sold to The New Haven Pulp & Board Co. of New Haven, Conn.

Stories from the Mill

Glen Veinot tells that his father, Bruce Veinot, worked at the mill from 1942-1956.  He said that the comradeship of the men who worked there was very high and everyone respected Captain Parnell, the manager, very much.  The corp. company who ran it refused to invest in modern machinery when they should have.  Bruceís father was a foreman there.  His name was Eleazer Veinot.  He sold his shares in a shingle mill he co-owned in Newburne ( Indian Falls) and moved to New Germany in 1901 to work in this mill.  It closed in 1956, because it only made the pulp, not the paper, and used a water wheel for power.  It was a sad day for New Germany as it was one of the greatest factors in New Germany growing to what it was
