Hemlock Bark and Wisconsin’s Tanning Industry: The World Walked on Milwaukee Leather
Milwaukee led the world in tanning leather in the early 1900s, though tanneries were in operation throughout all of Wisconsin from the mid-1800s to the early 1920s. Most used hemlock bark for tanning the leather, thus hemlock trees were cut down by the tens of millions to supply the tanneries. The tanbark industry was an important part of early Wisconsin’s economy and thousands of people were employed around the state in the art of bark tanning. By author, John Bates.
