Description of City/Town
Farming is the principal occupation of the inhabitants. The principal village is at the south-west part, at the junction of the Portland, Saco and Portsmouth and Boston and Maine railroads. The North Berwick Woolen Company have a fine brick mill on the Great Works River, at the village. It is 120 feet long and three stories in height, and has an engine of sufficient power to carry the mill in case of drought. Forty looms, six sets of cards, and thirteen spinning jacks are operated, which turn out daily 1,500 yards of flannel, beside blankets, and employ about 80 hands.
