Libertyville Woolen Mill

Little documentation exists on the Libertyville Woolen Mill beyond local tradition stating that New Paltz residents Jacob Lowe (b.1786) and his brother Samuel (b.1789) were in partnership with Solomon DuBois in running a mill which specialized in fancy coverlet weaving.  The mill was located approximately three miles south of New Paltz on the Wallkill River. The New York Census for Libertyville, Ulster Co., for 1850 lists Jacob Lowe as a weaver.

Historic Huguenot Street owns eleven coverlets produced at this factory (including one from the second type dated 1846). Family names include: Hasbrouck, Elting, Deyo, LeFevre, Roosa, Freer, Van Nostrand, and DuBois
