Narragansett Suspender and Web Co. () 

 

 Narragansett Suspender and Web Co.1

 

The Narragansett Suspender and Web Company began in 1865 as the Canton Elastic Fabric Company, and was founded by Joseph W. Wattles, Charles Draper, Horace H. Mansfield, and Daniel TV Huntoon. The company building was located on Sherman Street near Canton Junction. In January 1869, the property was sold to Mr. Wattles; in 1870, the company dissolved, and became the Narragansett Suspender and Web Company. In its time, the company was said to have had "a wide reputation", according to D. Hamilton Hurd. The mill was destroyed by fire on May 10, 1884; according to a book published for Canton's bicentennial, "a train on its way to Boston stopped and the passengers got off to watch the conflagration."
