Significance: The Dolphin Mill building was constructed in the mid 1840's to house the American Hemp Co., a firm which spun hemp into rope. Following a reorganization in 1851, the Dolphin Manufacturing Co., which took over operations at the mill, emphasized the spinning of jute and production of twisted jute carpeting. The firm continued to prosper and was, by 1881, the largest jute factory in the U.S. The firm eventually went out of business in the late 1950s.
