Here is the list of abandoned Paper Mills in New Jersey.
Abandoned Fibermark Paper Mill
The history of what was most recently known as the Fibermark Paper Mill starts in the early 1900’s. It was built by the Riegal Paper Company. Riegal already owned two other paper mills in the area, one in Hughsville and the other in Milford. Little is recorded about what the Warren Glen facility specialized in, but the massive building was the largest structure for miles.
Abandoned Riegel Paper Mill
This massive paper mill was built along the banks of the Delaware River in what was then Holland Township. The area was mostly farmland, next to which new Riegel Paper Mill seemed a monolith. Sitting on the better part of 70 acres of land, the mill was quite beneficial for the township.
Abandoned Curtis Paper Mill
Four tall smokestacks, the final remnants of the Curtis Speciality Paper Mill, were demolished in October 2019, opening the site up for potential new developments.
For many residents, it was a bittersweet moment since, at one point, the Curtis Paper Mill was the biggest employer in the area. Records from 1961 indicate that 1,250 people worked there.
Abandoned Union Waxed Paper Mill
One of the most iconic abandoned locations in New Jersey has to be the old Wheatsworth Mill building. However, few people know that behind the Wheatsworth complex along the old NJ Midland Railroad lies another piece of Hamburg’s industrial past; the old Union Waxed and Parchment Paper Mill.
