Plymouth Cordage Company
 

The Plymouth Cordage Company, a rope making company, was founded by Bourne Spooner in 1824 in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The company was in operation for over 140 years and was the largest employer in Plymouth for 100 years.  It became the largest manufacturer of rope and twine in the world by the late 19th century. 

 

The Plymouth Cordage Company was not just a company, it was a community founded on the philosophy that a happy worker made a better employee.  The community consisted of the factory, housing, medical facilities, a school, library, gymnasium, bowling alley and men's club.
