Samples of Cocheco Mill textiles. Dover was, at one time, one of the dominant cotton manufacturing towns in the world. It was also the site of the first (unsuccessful) strikes by women factory workers. The first owner of the Hale House was responsible for building the early cotton mills, many of which still remain and form the primary elements in Dover's manufacturing personality.
