In 1812 the town was called Bergen’s Mill and had a community of 25. The Meyer Rubber Co. was the big company in town until it burnt down in 1845. Years later, in 1906, Milltown became the home of Russell Playing Card Co. and then in 1907, Michelin Tire Co. The building that you see in this photo is the Michelin factory which closed its doors in 1930. Of course, as business goes, Russell Playing Card Co. was acquired 1936 by the United States Playing Card Co. and moved to Ohio. In 1970 the library, where I spent the day working, opened.
