Description of City/Town
Located on the Androscoggin River, Lisbon Falls was a village within the town of Lisbon. Its principal industry was the Worumbo Woolen Mill, which employed about one hundred men and seventy women. This workforce manufactured 120,000 yards of wool cloth annually. Nearby was the sawmill of the Androscoggin Waterpower Company, where thirty men and boys produced three to five million feet of lumber each year. The same company operated a large grist mill. The products of these industries were shipped by rail to Brunswick or Lewiston for transport to market.
