The George Whiting Paper Company Mill was built in 1882 on an abandoned dry dock located at the west end of the old Menasha Government Canal. By 1889, the Whiting Mill employed 75 hands and turned out 15,000 pounds of high-grade book paper and colored laid writing paper each day. The quality of the Whiting Paper Company's unique specialty products is respected throughout the industry.
