General Note

  • The Standard Manufacturing Co., built by Dr. Daniel Andrews Sr. on the eastern tip of the island, manufactured "Donax Brushes" and brush fibers out of young cabbage palms from 1910 until 1952 except during World War II when it closed for a lack of workers. Palm fibers were shipped nationwide and as far as Canada, Germany, and Australia. Locally it was known as the "Fiber Factory".
