IN the 1920s the payroll included over 300 people, but in later years fewer than 200 worked there. and by the 50s antiquated machines in a small mill made compettion with larger facilities impossible. In 1957 the mill closed for good. The silk mill still stands in Lonaconing, as it did 50 years ago.
