Built here in 1864-65 because of Cedar Creek's water power, Hilgen and Wittenberg's mill made yarns, blankets and flannels. Incorporated in 1872 as the Cedarburg Woolen Mill, it was the only extensive woolen mill in 1878. A branch mill built in Grafton in 1880 was the only producer of worsted yarns west of Philadelphia, employing 60 hands and doing $125,000 business annually.
