History of Beckett Paper Detailed in Exhibited Booklet

BUTLER COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

“The history of the Beckett Paper Company is intimately involved with the early development of the Ohio territory from a forest wilderness into today’s great complex of farms, highways and cities. The progenitors of William Beckett, the founder of the firm, were among the first to arrive from the East and settle here, and they contributed materially to the establishment of communities and productive enterprises in the valley of the Great Miami River in southwestern Ohio, where the city of Hamilton is located…”

beckett 175 19Beckett, an exhibition of photos and artifacts from the Beckett Paper Company, is on view through the end of November at the Butler County Historical Society, 327 N. Second Street.

The exhibition includes a 36-page booklet  published in honor of the 125th anniversary of the company, detailing its founding and history.

HEY! Hamilton! welcomes polite discourse, but all comments are moderated and will not appear with the post until they have been approved by the editor, which could be soon, could be tomorrow. Could be never if you're being a troll. Thank you.
