Overview and metadata sections
The Dublin Farmers' Cooperative Association was formed in early 1921 by local farmers and businessmen in Dublin, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Later that year they bought a feed and mill store owned by Jacob B. Rosenberger, although that building was destroyed by a fire at the end of 1922. A new building was erected on the same site. The organization changed its name to the Dublin Milling Company in 1927. It sold farming supplies, advertising itself as "Dublin Milling Company, Inc., dealers in flour, feeds, grain, seeds and fertilizer."
In the 1980s, the company was sold to the Farm Bureau Cooperative. In 1985, the mill was destroyed by fire.

Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2012-2014 as part of a project conducted by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to make better known and more accessible the largely hidden collections of small, primarily volunteer run repositories in the Philadelphia area. The Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR) was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was accomplished during the HCI-PSAR project.
In some cases, more detailed inventories or finding aids may be available on-site at the repository where this collection is held; please contact Dublin Historical Society directly for more information.
