For decades, Baker’s employees lived within close range of the mills, creating a community that extended outside the factory walls. Making chocolate was often a family affair and the mills were full of brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters.

The pages that follow are about former Baker’s employees. Learn more about who they were, what kinds of jobs they performed, and what life was like inside the Baker’s mills.
