Operating in Bennington, NH since 1819, the company originally went by the name, “Paper Mill.” In 1880, it was renamed Monadnock Paper Mills (Monadnock) for the region’s most prominent mountain. Monadnock is an Algonquin word for high point and one who stands alone, a name well-chosen to represent an enduring legacy of excellence and commitment to the environment.
