Description of City/Town
There was formerly a large quantity of lime made in the town, and the industry is still followed to some extent. The coasting trade was formerly much pursued, but has been mostly abandoned. Ship-building, also, was formerly a leading industry. Between the years 1770 and 1850 there were built 224 vessels, varying from fifty to above 1,000 tons burthen. This business too, has now fallen off. The principal manufactures at present are woollens, by the Georges River Mills; snow-shoes, by the Warren Shoe factory, each employing nearly 100 hands, and E. Wason, powder.
