Pandemics Past and Present

The staff photo of the 1918 Frankenmuth Woolen Mill staff was taken during the height of the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic. This horrible virus killed over 675,000 Americans. Today, some 100 years later our country and mill are faced with another pandemic. The Frankenmuth Woolen Mill team sends thoughts and prayers to all affected by the Covid-19. We trust that in 100 years the history books will show that America and our mill overcame this national crisis and continue to flourish for years to come.
