Shapiro and Wagman built the shoe factory on Railroad Avenue.This was later sold to National Shoe and Leather, who operated the shop for many years.This shoe shop made “Ladies Fancy Shoes,” and they were of excellent quality.Any local ladies, who were fortunate to own a pair, were much envied by their friends.The Governor’s brother Daniel Plumer, was also a cordwainer, making “Gentlemen’s Pumps.” The process of making shoes was a hard and tedious business.
Note: I grew up in the James Corning house, and we did not have running water.
The younger members of the family were often put to work scraping the hides and preparing them for cutting.
The early shoe factories in Epping were small, but as our working population grew, larger factories were built.
So, my grandfather decided to dig a long trench and lay pipes to bring water to the farmhouse. I now realize we found the remains of the factory on the property!
I often wondered why our farm had five wells, two of which were located far from our home.
