Location is Key

Established in 1879, the Williams Brothers Mill was one of the most successful businesses in Kent. This early photo of the mill shows its proximity to the Cuyahoga River, the Pennsylvania & Ohio Canal, and the Erie Railroad. Clearly, this was an ideal location for easily moving goods in and out of the mill. The Williams Brothers sold their mill to the Star of the West Company in 1999. It is still in operation today.
