Baron Woolen Mill Information


One of the new locations we will be researching for the database is the Baron Woolen Mill.
Below is a snippet form a website I found about the location.

You and your team may get lucky enough to find a location where you can test some paranormal theories at. The Baron Woolen Mill would be that place for my team. Doug, my co-founder, sent me a news article about this old historical building with a rich history and so much to offer. As you approach the location itself, you can feel the energy coming from its walls. Now home to bats, pigeons, and many ghosts, the outside seems to screams, “Come talk to me!” Built in the late eighteen hundreds by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as a wool factory, it was the only wool mill in the U.S. that was self reliant, producing its own cotton and wool. The wool and cotton would be cleaned on site and had one of the first cotton gins ever in the west. It was later taken over by the Baron family and run by them for over a hundred years. Like many old businesses, they had to close their doors in 1996, but some blankets and coats can still be found online today. Many items were made in the mill, from suits to blankets. Three U.S. presidents wore a suit made at the mill during their inaugural speech. They were commandeered by the U.S. Army in World War II and made nothing but wool blankets. Now it stands as an empty shell with broken windows and a few machines left from its glory days as a factory. Even the original boiler still sits in the back of the building, almost like a watch dog on its home.
