This 16-minute silent film depicts some of the operations of the Hagar Straw Board and Paper Mill in Cedarville, Ohio, including the delivery and stacking of straw bales, and the burning of straw in a field. Of special interest are views of a retaining pond and other water control mechanisms apparently created to manage the waste water going into Massie’s Creek from the paper production process. In addition to the pond, there are views of the Massie’s Creek dam, some sluices, and excavations along the creek. Various recreational water activities are also depicted along the creek and especially in the reservoir behind the dam.
