One of Hamilton’s oldest industries was in Lindenwald. Begun as Shuler and Benninghofen Woolen Mills, the plant was known worldwide for the production of felts, used by paper mills. The felts and also blankets produced at the plant were sold all over the country. The plant ceased operation in Lindenwald in 1967 after joining with Orr Felt of Piqua.
15 miles north of Cincinnati along US 127(Hamilton Ave./Pleasant Ave.), Lindenwald is located at the southeastern edge of Hamilton in Butler County. At the turn of the century this was a prosperous neighborhood, but as the 20th century progressed, life in Lindenwald slowed down. Today revival efforts by residents and developers are showing progress. A streetscape project will soon be competed refreshing the area lining it with Linden trees.
