Otis Mill: A Journey Through the Eras of Pulp and Papermaking

Otis Mill in Jay and Livermore Falls, Franklin County, Maine is a former pulp and paper mill that has undergone several transformations since its beginning in 1892. As of 2009, ownership of the mill belongs to Mary Howes and Tim DeMillo as part of Otis Ventures, LLC (OVL), and it has been undergoing renovations ever since. It is a goal of Mrs. Howes and Mr. DeMillo to develop key sections of the mill into a museum to allow the community of Jay and the state of Maine to revisit an industry so significant to its own growth. This student report includes the history of the development of the mill, information for a future museum, and an appendix of with terminology.
