Description of City/Town

While much of Fairfield was devoted to agriculture, Kendall’s Mills, the principal village, was the center of several industries. The Kennebec River provided waterpower for sawmills, planning mills, and door, sash and blind factories. In addition to wood products, local businesses included a corn cannery, a clothing factory, a grist mill, and a tannery.
