New Richmond Broom Manufacturer -- Source: New Richmond Record 13 Dec 1900 p 5 Another winter will see another new industry added to New Richmond. A factory for the manufacture of brooms, and which will give employment to several idle men during the winter months. Mr. E. C. Campbell is the promoter of the new enterprise and has given out these as his intentions. Mr. Campbell is himself a regular professional broom-maker, every winter making many dozens of brooms of a most excellent and durable quality for his own immediate family use and that of a few of his neighbors. Broom corn raising everywhere proves a most profitable branch of agriculture and it will be an easy matter to get all the broom corn needed for the new factory in a small area of country close adjacent to New Richmond. One farmer here who cultivated only a small plot of broom corn on hi farm this year reaped such a profit out of it that he expects next year to play five acres. With this new enterprise practically installed, New Richmond will give employment to several more day laborers during the winter months and the growing of broom corn will be a source of very profitable agriculture with our farmers. - k
