Don’t Leave Hawley Silk Mill Off Your Itinerary
Hawley Silk Mill has been a vital part of this community since its construction in 1880. Its many uses over the years have included a silk factory, a textile factory, and antique center. Never has it been more vibrant than today. The vision for the repurposed factory is to serve as a center that celebrates the lifestyle of the Pocono Lake Region – a place for the residents and visitors alike to shop, gather, eat, exercise, and learn.
