Howard Smith’s #11 Boiler House

The paper mill’s #11 Boiler House was constructed as part of 45 week 1959 upgrade and expansion which saw upgrades to the Kraft Mill, #10 Boiler House, the Vanillin plant, creation of the North Wood Room, expansion to the Finishing Room, the addition of Paper Machine #6 and the ensuing demise of Smithville. This photo sequence illustrates the progression of the new boiler house with its 225 foot stack. Note the former Cornwall Pump House on the south shore of the canal, directly behind #11. The new plant could burn either coal or oil.


These are but a few of the many images in the Archives at your Cornwall Community Museum. Be sure to stop by our new paper mill exhibit which will officially launch on October 19th.
