Dating as far back as the early 1900s, Lydia Mill, now in ruins, had housing on-site for its employees. Now a headless female ghost roams the premises, seen around the railroad tracks or in the mill building.

        my granddad William “Bill”Cauble also worked “Lidie mill” and so did my father when he was about 14 (would have been 1947 or 1948).
