KnittingMills(PC)_REFW.jpg - Elmira Knitting Mills -  Prescott Ave. in Elmira Heights. Established in 1893 and remained in operation until 1963. To encourage young girls to work there, the company built the Conewawah Inn just across the street, on the corner of Prescott Ave and E. 18th St. A matron was on hand, and room and board were reasonably priced.
