Yardley's Cold Spring Bleachery

Washing and Dyeing and Stretching - Oh My!

Yardley’s largest industry once stood on the site of what are now the residences at Yardley Walk off North Main Street.

The Cold Spring Bleachery, built in 1902, received huge bolts of “gray” cloth, cleaned and finished the material, then shipped it to manufacturers to be made into consumer goods, such as men’s shirts.

In its 1950-60s heyday, the Bleachery employed 150 people; and its buildings, tanks, and reservoirs spread over its 28-acre property. The operation was part of the rhythm of Yardley with its daily opening and closing whistle serving as the town clock.

The Yardley Historical Association is privileged to have a wealth of photographs of the Cold Spring Bleachery – the buildings, its operations, its executives and employees, as well as its demolition. These photos and the Bleachery stories will be shared during a PowerPoint presentation.

Come see Yardley’s industrial past!
