Making Paper, Making Maine

Paper has shaped Maine’s economy, molded individual and community identities, and impacted the environment throughout Maine. When Hugh Chisholm opened the Otis Falls Pulp Company in Jay in 1888, the mill was one of the most modern paper-making facilities in the country, and was connected to national and global markets. For the next century, Maine was an international leader in the manufacture of pulp and paper. Making Paper, Making Maine recognizes the historic transition taking place in Maine’s paper industry, and asks, what’s next for Maine’s economy?
