Abstract

Westbrook has become an affordable small city since a foul-smelling pulp operation--once owned by the town's largest employer, S.D Warren Co.--closed in 1998. The former Dana Warp yarn mill on the Presumpscot River is home to small businesses, and artists like stained glass artist Robin Neely, painter Greg Parker, and the Bakery Photographic Collective. Two large companies, Idexx Laboratories and Disability RMS, were founded in Portland and moved to Westbrook, where they say business is welcomed and supported.
