Long Eddy was teeming with industry during the late 1800's. Factories and mills produced board lumber, furniture, rolling pins, handles for rakes and hoes, spindles, porch posts, corn meal, buckwheat flour, wooden cheese boxes and excelsior. The large "acid factories" burned wood in large ovens to produce charcoal, acetate and wood alcohol.
To keep up with the industry, Long Eddy formed utilities. The Hydraulic and Manufacturing Company built a dam across the Delaware River to provide water power. (It was short-lived, as a flood took it down the river.) Long Eddy had its own water and telephone companies.
