FROM THE CREEL RICHARDSON ROOM By Joni Wood

One mile east of Newton once stood the Killebrew

Factory from the late 19 th to early 20 th Century. Marmaduke Norphlet Killebrew bought a small mill in 1865 shortly after moving his family to Newton. The mill operated as a grist and rice mill as well as a cotton gin until ultimately operating as a woolen mill by 1872. A water wheel located at a nearby pond, built by Marmaduke, generated power for the mill. The Killebrew & Son firm formed in 1872 after Marmaduke’s son, Thomas J. Killebrew, joined his father in the business. Together with only a $20,000 capital, they set up 160 woolen spindles, 128 cotton spindles, and 12 looms for their production of Killebrew Jeans. Killebrew Jeans were the most popular brand of jeans in the region and men from all over Georgia, Florida, and Alabama visited Killebrew to either trade wool for the jeans or buy them for $2.50 a pair. In 1885, Killebrew & Son dissolved into the Killebrew Woolen Mills after Marmaduke’s retirement, which left Thomas as owner. By 1890, Killebrew produced over 5,000 yards of woolen

cloth per month, 25,000 pounds of spun yarn per month, and employed 15 individuals. The mill expanded in 1890 when a

50 feet X 100 feet one-story brick building was constructed

and later in 1906 when a two-story brick building was constructed next to the 1890 building. Also in 1906, Thomas’ son, Albert R. Killebrew, joined the family business. A few years later, production of Killebrew jeans ceased due to

scarcity of wool at the beginning of World War I. An ad in the March 25, 1937 edition of The Southern Star indicated `the old factory was now the Killebrew Ice & Cold Storage Company. The old factory buildings were torn down in the 1950s, sometime later the water wheel was torn down and the pond was drained as well. The machinery that cost $15,000 brand new later sold for $200 worth of scrap metal. Now all that

remains of the Killebrew Factory is its memories and place in

our local history books.

Things are rocking this month at Ozark Dale County Library (ODCL)!! The Summer Reading Program, “Libraries Rock!”, will kick off with Elvis (Jerome Jackson) Thursday, June 7 from 2-4. Do not miss this event. The reading program continues every Thursday thru June. Mark your calendars for June 12 at 2. The Book Club will discuss Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. This is a moving memoir of growing up with flawed adults. We expect this discussion to be quite interesting. On June 2 at 9:00, the Friends of the Library will hold a Big Book Sale. We have probably any kind of book you may want to read and they are priced just right—cheap. This is a “Buy One Get One Free” sale. Get here early so you can get the best deals.

We continue to move forward with the plans for the new Library. Come by and check out our
